How to boost clone screening in recombinant therapeutic protein development

High-throughput immunoassays underpin efficiency and productivityHigh-throughput immunoassays underpin efficiency and productivity

Automation is being applied at many levels to power future development of recombinant therapeutic proteins, including screening for the most promising recombinant protein clones. Gregory Keil and co-authors at Merck & Co. have reviewed how this screening can be transformed by combining high-throughput screening methods, analytical techniques and automation to increase capacity, reduce manual operations and risk for error, lower operational costs, and shorten development timelines (see reference).

Working in Harmony with Multiple Ligand-Binding Assay Platforms

Guidelines for automating your LBAs for GxP

Harmony3Thinking about automating ligand-binding assays (LBA) for a GxP environment? Assay automation can bring great value, including time and cost savings, better results, higher throughput, lower sample volume requirements and simplified proof-of-concept than manual methods. But each platform is different and brings its own protocols, recommendations and constraints. How does one even begin to define parameters that might be critical in validating assays on different types of platforms?
