Let’s make science unlimited, together.

Aptamer Group pursues a variety of partnerships across the life science ecosystem, aiming to bring our Optimer® platform to enable new solutions for scientific breakthroughs.

Collaborating across the life sciences

Our commitment to innovation and integrity leads to longstanding, valuable partnerships with biopharma companies, academic institutions, manufacturing companies, charitable research organisations, and more.

Biotherapeutic partners

Optimer® binders enable the selective targeting of biomarkers and tissues with tuneable kinetics and half-life for diverse therapeutic approaches.


We partner with biotherapeutic developers to leverage our platform’s capabilities and develop targeted therapies through:

A selection of our work with biotherapeutic partners

Cancer Research UK

To develop bifunctional Optimer® therapeutics for the treatment of Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukaemia (CMML)


To develop Optimer®-drug conjugates to target solid tumours

Diagnostic partners

Enabling the pursuit of new biomarkers with assay-compatible binders is breaking down barriers to new and improved diagnostics for global health.


We partner with test developers to advance development with critical tools for a range of assay types, including IHC, LFD, ELISA, and biosensors.
