  • Cellular Assays: Includes cell viability assays using dyes ranging from simple exclusion dyes to advanced fluorophores and luminophores.
  • Proliferation Assays: MTT, CAA, CFU and similar assays.
  • ROS Studies: Cellular free radical detection assays including ROS, Peroxy-nitrite, SuperOxide etc
  • Enzyme Assays: We perform enzyme assays on a wide range of cellular and mini-organelle as well as 3D nano-bio-structures including ROS scavenging Enzymes, Enzymes governing the inflammatory and regulatory pathways etc. We conduct these assays not only on in vitro samples, but also using plasma samples.
  • Protein Studies: Linq Labs can perform protein detection, identification, quantitation, localization, purification etc. using standard technologies
  • Genomic Studies: Genome related assays like RT-PCR, qR-PCR etc are performed at Linq labs, for multiple therapeutic purposes
  • Customized Studies: Linq Labs also has the ability to perform customized end to end studies in various fields of Biomedical Applications including Cancer, Diabetes among others.

c. BioBank:

Linq Labs homes a fully functional BioBank, which supplies solid and fluid tissue samples, along with de-personalized medical data. It also houses cell lines, which may be used for studies, or accessed post expansion.


d. Microbiological Studies:

Linq Labs provides a comprehensive range of antimicrobial efficacy testing for a range of products such as cosmetics and healthcare products

We provide end to end testing services which include protocol development, IRB/ Ethics committee clearance (if applicable, study conduct which may include recruitment of subjects, data collection and analysis and report generation. Linq Labs has a database of several thousand active healthy volunteers

Testing is done on wide range of microorganisms which include all kinds of aerobic and anerobic organisms
