Total Scientific Limited
Total Scientific Limited

Total Scientific Ltd is a preclinical CRO based near Cambridge, UK. We specialise in developing and characterising bespoke in vitro assays for discovery and development, including enzyme assays, binding assays and immunoassays together with biomolecule interaction services (Biacore)

Total Scientific is a niche contract research organisation that offers a range of in vitro laboratory-based services focussed on biomarkers, including:

  • Biomarker discovery (proteomics and metabolomics)
  • Assay development and characterisation
  • Biacore
  • Bioanalysis of pre-clinical and clinical samples
  • Multiplex analysis
  • Functional cell-based assays

In addition to these laboratory-based services we offer a range of clinical services:

  • Complete provision of biomarker-related research clinical studies
  • Custom electronic case report forms (eCRFs)
  • Data management and statistical analysis

We also have ethical approval which permits us to take blood samples from healthy volunteers; this enables us to offer development or optimisation of assays evaluating biomarkers of human disease using freshly-prepared preparations of human blood fractions or cells. These could include assays using techniques such as flow cytometric or receptor binding assays.

Each of these services we offer is backed up by a strong ethos which mean that you can have the trust in our ability to deliver your project. Every project is handled by a responsive senior member of staff, and we keep rigid control of budgets and timelines.

Together with our scientific capabilities, Total Scientific places emphasis on our communication and reporting. We have stringent document management protocols in place that ensure that all of your research is kept organised and secure. All experiment protocols and results are stringently recorded, ensuring that transfer of assays back to clients can be made with a minimum of effort.

In summary, Total Scientific are a reliable and reputable CRO that has an extremely flexible approach which has led us to become the CRO of choice for many of our clients, especially with bespoke projects that would be difficult to outsource to a traditional CRO.
