TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 25, 2016) - In this session, industry experts Andrea Gorlani, Scientist at ModiQuest Research and Thomas Duensing, Chief Technology Officer at IntelliCyt Corporation will provide an overview on how to maximize the chances of finding therapeutic leads by implementing the iQue Screener platform.
Key presentation points include:
- The use of the iQue Screener platform in various stages of antibody discovery campaigns, from stable target expressing cell line selection, to high throughput hybridoma screening, and finally to functional antibody lead characterization.
- The ability of the iQue Screener platform to simultaneously combine testing for control antigens, species cross reactivity and multiple antibody projects in a single primary screen.
- The key benefits of using no-wash, miniaturized, high throughput assay formats to screen large antibody libraries.
There is a substantial interest in high quality, functional antibodies against membrane spanning proteins. Generating antibodies specific for these targets in their native conformation is very challenging, yet crucial for therapeutic and diagnostic antibody development.
The intrinsic advantage of in-solution, cell based assays over ELISA is that they facilitate the study of antibody-antigen interaction in their native environment: the cell surface. The iQue Screener scales up the throughput of such assays to several thousand samples/day, and it is a powerful tool to screen large antibody panels for properties beyond mere antigen binding.
The live broadcast takes place on Monday, November 7, 2016 at 11am EST (4pm GMT/UK). For more information or to register for this complimentary event, visit: A High Throughput Multiparametric Approach to Identifying Biologically Relevant Target Antibodies
