Control and calibrator materials are critical components for many diagnostic immunoassays.
Have you encountered difficulties using patient sera to standardize assays, such as obtaining it in sufficient quantity, free of viruses or other harmful substances and ensuring a consistent long-term supply?
Additionally, the polyclonal nature of human sera means that it contains several different antibodies with a range of affinities, causing variation between different production batches. The lack of consistency of this assay component complicates comparison of assay methods, kit batches and manufacturers.
Fully human, recombinant monoclonal antibodies with desired specificity and tailored isotype provide the answer.
Watch our webinar to find out how we use the HuCAL® antibody library and phage display technology to generate custom recombinant antibodies as alternatives to human sera, with the following advantages:
