Human Monoclonal Antibody Production Services

KMD Bioscience has been working on producing monoclonal antibodies for many years. Monoclonal antibodies are identical immunoglobulins that are generated from identical immune cells. Compared to polyclonal antibodies, monoclonal antibodies can be specific to a single epitope and produced large quantities of identical antibodies. We can provide comprehensive services for high-quality monoclonal antibody development to meet various customers’ requirements. Our scientific staff has extensive monoclonal antibody development experience, in order to deliver successful monoclonal antibodies to customers in every projects.

There are two methods to produce human monoclonal antibody: Recombinant monoclonal antibody produced from phage display technology; Hybridoma cell line production by using cell fusion technology. With our upgraded antibody platform, KMD Bioscience provides one-stop services including antigen design, synthesis and modification, in vitro sensitization, phage library construction and screening, antibody modification and application verification.

 

Human Monoclonal Antibody Production:

 

After human body was infected by foreign substances such as viruses, bacteria and parasites, there are lymphocytes in the peripheral blood that are capable of secreting antibodies against these foreign substances. With our extensive antibody production experiences, we developed a unique platform to manufacture human monoclonal antibody. It is well known that EBV virus can infect and transform human cells, and the transformed human cells have the characteristics of proliferation of tumor cells in vitro. At the same time, using peripheral blood mononuclear cells to perform in vitro sensitization, our engineers used isolated and sensitized peripheral blood mononuclear cells infected by EBV virus, forming a unique sensitized and screened monoclonal cells strategy. This strategy can improve the success rate of antigen specificity and high-affinity human monoclonal antibody production.

Human monoclonal antibody production via our hybridoma-like technology: clients can provide small molecules, peptides, modified peptides, proteins, fusion proteins, modified proteins as antigens for monoclonal antibody production. Meanwhile, we provide antigen custom services as well, such as DNA synthesis, plasmid construction, peptide synthesis, peptide modification, peptide and carrier protein cross-linking, small molecule structure analysis and carrier proteins conjugation.
