About Aptamer Group

Aptamer Group is a biotechnology company founded in 2008 by Dr Arron Tolley (CEO) & Dr David Bunka (CTO). It was established based on technology to develop aptamers, nucleic acid molecules with affinity and selectivity for a specified target, as an alternative to antibodies.

The company was initially grant funded and involved in collaborative projects to establish the technology and processes. Our proprietary technology has been available for a number of years to customers wanting to develop affinity / binding molecules for a range of uses.

Aptamer Group is recognised as a key player in the aptamer selection market offering customers access to an accelerated aptamer selection platform that delivers tailor-made high-affinity, highly specific molecules for use in a variety of scenarios.

In summary, we help customers select ssDNA and/or RNA aptamers against their target of interest for development as potential bio-therapeutics, research tools, diagnostic reagents and/or biomarker discovery tools.
