GenScript Launches Custom Rabbit Monoclonal Antibody Service
Now, One of Two Major Companies Offering Difficult-To-Hybridize Rabbit mAbs
Piscataway, NJ, June 27, 2017 - GenScript announced the launch of its new custom rabbit monoclonal antibody (mAb) service MonoRab , as part of the integrated premium antibody service portfolio.
Rabbit monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are well known for their high affinity, specificity, diversity, and their ability to recognize hidden, hard-to-target epitopes. They are ideal for anti-idotypic (anti-ID) antibodies, PK, and immunogenicity studies, and in vitro diagnostics (IVD) assays/kit development.
"Until now, researchers' access to this important technology has been limited. Our proprietary MonoRab™ technology uses a combination of hybridoma technologies and early-stage monoclonal antibody sequencing to deliver custom rabbit mAbs that are more specific with higher affinity and diversified to meet the requirements for a growing range of applications."
—Dr. Liusong Yin, GenScript, Head of Antibody Department
"It is a challenge to obtain stable hybridoma clones to produce rabbit mAbs. Until now, researchers' access to this important technology has been limited," said Dr. Liusong Yin, Head of Antibody Department at GenScript. "Our proprietary MonoRab™ technology uses a combination of hybridoma technologies and early-stage monoclonal antibody sequencing to deliver custom rabbit mAbs that are more specific with higher affinity and diversified to meet the requirements for a growing range of applications. The delivered rabbit antibody sequences are stable forever and by choosing recombinant expression, GenScript clients can benefit from better antibody reproducibility, validation, and IP protection."
GenScript is one of the two major companies in the world able to deliver custom rabbit mAbs for commercial purpose. MonoRab™ can be used to develop rabbit mAbs against challenging targets, including anti-ID antibodies, membrane receptors, nanobodies, small molecule compounds, epigenetic modifications, and antibody drugs.
Since 2004, GenScript's comprehensive antibody services have produced more than 14,000 custom monoclonal antibodies and more than 100,000 polyclonal antibodies. As a "One-Stop Solution" to make research easier, GenScript's diverse monoclonal antibody service portfolio includes premium hybridoma lead generation, high-throughput screening (including FACS), antibody sequencing, antibody humanization and affinity maturation, recombinant antibody expression, and highthroughput gene-to-antibody production.
