As you may recall, Kerafast recently announced a merger with Absolute Antibody, a UK-based company with a vision to make recombinant antibody technology available to all researchers.
Kerafast customers can now easily take advantage of Absolute Antibody’s custom antibody services, and one we thought might be of interest is their hybridoma sequencing service, which provides the sequence for all antibody transcripts within a hybridoma cell line.
Benefits to sequencing your antibody include:
- Your antibody is protected even if the hybridoma is contaminated, mutated or lost
- You can produce your antibody recombinantly, ensuring batch-to-batch reproducibility
- Your antibody can be reformatted into different species, isotypes and/or subtypes
The process is simple: you would simply ship your hybridoma to our Boston office, and we take care of the rest. The service is guaranteed – no sequence, no fee – and we can often rescue non-viable or contaminated hybridomas. In 2017, more than 600 hybridomas were successfully sequenced using this service.
You can read more about the sequencing service here. If you’re interested in learning more or have a potential project in mind, please let us know.
