Title: Transform your bioanalytical assay development with TrailBlazer Antibodies

Date: Wednesday 2 December 2020

Time: 10:00 [EST] 07:00 [PST] 15:00 [GMT] Additional time zones

Duration: 1 hour

Discover how your bioanalytical assays can be transformed with site-specific conjugated antibodies in multiple formats, made using SpyTag technology and custom HuCAL® recombinant antibody generation.

The antibodies used in bioanalytical assays are critical for optimizing selectivity and sensitivity. Having an antibody in only one format can limit your options and producing well-characterized conjugated molecules can be difficult, costly and delay your progress. Learn how SpyTag-SpyCatcher technology has been incorporated with custom HuCAL® recombinant antibody generation to make 'TrailBlazer Antibodies'. This innovative combination enables site-directed conjugation of antibodies and rapid assembly of different stable formats. The outcome is an extensive antibody toolbox in your hands that provides multiple options for assay design, with the added advantage of a consistent, long term supply. 

What will you learn?

  • Learn about SpyTag-SpyCatcher technology.
  • Discover how it is used with Bio-Rad’s custom recombinant antibodies.
  • Understand how it enables site-directed conjugation and rapid assembly of different antibody formats.
  • See performance data.

Who may this interest?

  • Bioanalytical scientists developing pharmacokinetic and anti-drug antibody assays for clinical trials and for therapeutic drug monitoring.
  • Scientists seeking custom antibody reagents designed for their large molecule biologic or biosimilar.

Tue, Dec 15, 2020 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM CET

In this webinar the teams at Spherotech and De Novo Software have collaborated to teach you about the beads and workflows you can use to perform daily QC checks on your cytometers, calibrate your data sets to MESF, and use FCS Express to do so in an mostly automated fashion without external Excel spreadsheets.

The team from Spherotech will discuss the technology and current workflows for using their Ultra and Rainbow Calibration Particles and the team from De Novo Software will follow to teach researchers how to use FCS Express for quick reporting and tracking of QC results, utilize regression graphing that links directly to your data sets/gates, and automatic channel calibration from known MESF standards.
