Application Note: Intellicyt® Mouse Igg Type and Titer Assay Kit: A Novel Solution to Expedite Antibody Discovery
Monoclonal antibodies (mAb) are one of the fastest-growing classes of biopharmaceuticals for multiple clinical indications including cancer, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disorders, and infectious disease. In the antibody discovery workflow, primary screens identify IgG expressing mouse hybridoma and/or B cell clones with specific antigen-binding attributes which are subsequently characterized through IgG isotyping, antibody quantification, and cell health assays. This multi-step process yields the critical information needed to identify and isolate the correct genetic material for downstream production clone creation.
Intellicyt has developed a novel solution to disruptively improve these steps in the traditional workflow. The Mouse IgG Type and Titer Kit is a single, multiplexed assay that simultaneously quantifies IgG isotype, IgG quantity per isotype, total IgG secretion, cell count and cell health. Benefits include:
- Save time and reagents by combining 3 assays in a high throughput, miniaturized format
- No sample dilution steps needed with high dynamic range competition approach
- Eliminate variability of wash steps with simple mix and read protocol
- Easily identify isotyped, monoclonal populations of high producers with healthy cells for downstream genetic isolation
