Immundnz was founded through a British and Dutch collaboration by Dr. Masih Alam and Dr. Robert-Jan Lamers. We are located in the Netherlands and at the prestigious Alderley Park campus in Cheshire, UK, where we have an immunology laboratory to provide in vivo and in vitro based solutions. At the Alderley Park we access high-end facilities, professionals and a lively network of other life sciences companies. Laboratory work related to mass spectrometry and other analytical chemistry is carried out in the Netherlands.
Our strength is in experimental biology. We are different from other CROs because we can design and carry out experimental studies that are unconventional and beyond the scope of standard assays. We provide a range of standard and custom-made assays to biopharmaceutical researchers and professionals worldwide. We also provide in vivo solutions from within the Alderley Park site. With our experience and track record, you can rely on us as your unique partner in immunology and in vitro projects.
Immundnz has an entrepreneurial team of highly-skilled and qualified experts in immunology, biochemistry and analytical chemistry. The members have originated from a rich academic research background, bringing their experience into translation. Immundnz collaborates with many biopharma and business professionals of multinational pharmaceutical companies who have experience in preclinical and clinical drug analysis.
