Monoclonal Antibody Discovery and Development for Oncology Research

Sartorius Solutions for Monoclonal Antibody (mAb) Therapy Discovery and Development

More Insight, Better Decisions

Therapeutic antibodies have recently emerged as one of the most successful immunotherapy strategies for the treatment of both hematologic cancers and solid tumors. 

To mount a successful monoclonal antibody (mAb)-based discovery and development program for cancer, whether developing therapeutic antibodies or antibody drug conjugates, you need technologies that allow rapid identification and characterization of candidate molecules to identify those with superior target reactivity and optimized functionality. Sartorius offers information-rich solutions for development of antibody therapeutics that enable tracking of complex biological processes at unprecedented speed, depth, and scale.

Accelerate your biotherapeutic development and still have peace of mind. Our unique and innovative solutions for discovery and development of mAb therapies streamline the workflow and increase productivity.

mAb Therapy Discovery & Development Workflow

Molecule Development

Candidate mAb therapy discovery and development begins with a comprehensive understanding of the biological and molecular pathways underlying disease states and a full understanding of how your candidates interrupt these processes. 

You need powerful tools that can deliver multifactorial results. Sartorius’s cell analysis platforms and laboratory essentials offer unique, high-capacity solutions for molecule development, from characterizing disease pathways to understanding candidate molecule function. 

Screen cells in suspension and targets in their natural conformation and get better information with simultaneous acquisition of both antigen binding and cross-reactivity.

Cell Line Development 

The success of your mAb development program hinges on early development of dedicated cell lines and identification of your best performers. Sartorius offers cell line development services if your plans call for outsourcing, and solutions for cell line development that you can use in-house.

Our products, services, and technologies offer innovative solutions to enable multiparametric assessment of clones, from protein concentration to cell health and viability, to rapidly and efficiently identify and rank your best performing clones.

See how clone ranking and selection can change dramatically by multiparametric assessment (IgG titer, IgG titer per cell, cell density and cell viability) of your clones, so you can screen more clones in less time and make decisions sooner.

Cell Analysis Platforms

Sartorius’s cell analysis platforms offer unique, high-capacity solutions for characterizing immune phenotype and function at unprecedented speed, depth, and scale to provide information-rich data for tracking complex biological processes. Our innovative technologies generate deeper, more relevant data on phenotype, activation, and function, using less of your precious samples. Unlike other approaches that require multiple assays or time points, our technologies reduce variability by delivering more data per time point, or across multiple time points, in the same context, under the same conditions. Using our comprehensive analysis and visualization capabilities for biologics characterization, you will have access to actionable results, faster.
