Accelerate Novel Antibody Discovery with Antigen-Specific B Cell Isolation

Life Sciences, Drug Discovery & Development, Preclinical,
  • Wednesday, May 31, 2023

Since the first therapeutic monoclonal antibody was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1986, the field of antibody therapy development has increased, yet it continues to face many challenges. The scarcity of antigen-specific B cells is one of the hurdles scientists face early-on when developing a monoclonal antibody to treat cancer, autoimmune disease or infection. In this webinar, learn about enhancing antibody discovery with novel strategies — such as the one developed by Single Cell Technology — that enable the accelerated generation of neutralizing monoclonal antibodies from influenza-vaccinated individuals.

Join this webinar to learn about the benefits of this approach for:

  • Expansion and activation of memory B cells
  • Isolation of antigen-specific memory B cells from vaccinated individuals with faster, gentler and safer microchip-based cell sorting
  • Capture and sequencing of antigen-specific antibodies using a novel platform for antibody discovery that uses next-gen sequencing technology
  • Creation, expression and cross-reactivity testing of recombinant antibodies
