Application note: A rapid method to quantitatively screen bispecific antibodies using Protein A and HIS1K biosensors

26 March 2020 | By

Scientists at Celgene Corporation developed a screening process incorporating the Octet® HTX system to identify pools and clones with higher concentrations of bispecific antibodies. Higher throughput was achieved from the multiple simultaneous measures possible on the Octet system and rapid assay times, such as binding optimisation in only 10 minutes.…


In vitro platforms for de-risking nephrotoxicity during drug development

25 March 2020 | By ,

If not correctly assessed, drug candidates with undesirable safety issues may progress through clinical development, resulting in costly failures later in the development process. Given that many drugs fail in clinical trials due to nephrotoxicity, this article describes the importance of understanding kidney transporter function in drug development, how current…
