Antibody drug discovery
Advance discovery by accelerating screening and optimization
The challenges facing antibody discovery
Targeting complicated membrane-bound proteins such as GPCRs and ion channels is at the forefront of antibody discovery. However, as the targets of biotherapeutics become more complex, an increasing number of candidates must now be screened in order to identify quality antibody leads against these difficult target classes.
In an attempt to achieve this throughput, antibody discovery labs now have to grapple with long wait times from synthetic biology service providers or hands-on, labor-intensive protocols often involving bacterial cultures, DNA extraction processes and quality control to build heavy and light chain constructs and amplify them before they are ready for expression.
The optimal synthetic biology solution should help seamlessly connect high-content sequencing data from B cell discovery platforms to downstream high-throughput antibody screening and characterization workflows ensuring consistent and high throughput is maintained throughout the discovery process.
