mAb Target Identification

mAb Molecule Development — Target Identification/Validation

Contact an Expert

Molecule Development Begins with Target Identification and Validation

A new drug starts as an idea or hypothesis based on:

  • Observations made during phenotypic drug discovery evaluations, or
  • Direct identification of targets with affinity during target-based drug discovery processes

Both these approaches require comprehensive understanding of the biological and molecular pathways underlying disease.

Challenges and Solutions for Developing New Monoclonal Antibodies

Unprecedented advances in medicine are delivering remarkable results for some patients. Recent approvals of CAR T therapies and new approaches in regenerative medicine, for example, exemplify Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) used for immunotherapy stimulate the immune system to mount a response to target antigens. These powerful therapeutics are being used to...

Protein Analysis Platforms - Octet Label-Free Biomolecular Analysis

Octet® HTX

Real-time, label-free binding interaction data provide unique insights into the specific molecular interactions that regulate cellular processes and pinpoint aberrant molecular interactions that lead to the pathway dysregulation and, ultimately, to disease.

Octet dip and read biosensor format make them uniquely suited to studying diverse molecular interactions in the most challenging, real-world samples. The 96-well and 384-well plate configurations enable consequential structure/function investigations, including large kinetic screens of panels of structural variants.
