EDITOR'S NOTE: We're thankful to be holding true to the potential we outlined in this original April 19 blog post. As part of a collaboration with Single Cell Technology, we've discovered a potential new path for SARS-CoV-2 vaccine and therapy research. We've published our findings in a new paper, and you can get an overview here (as well as a link to the complete research document).
“It must be noted, however, that a single product is unlikely to meet the currently very substantial medical need, and not all product candidates will be successful in clinical studies. Therefore, many initiatives aimed at developing investigational antibodies are needed.”
— Dr. Janice Reichert, executive director, The Antibody Society
Where We Stand Now: The bottom line up-front
It’s probably safe to assume that—for all the wrong reasons—”coronavirus” will be Merriam-Webster’s word of the year for 2020.

Isolating B cells can be a challenging exercise requiring careful planning, precise execution and the right technology. Over the years, the best method that we’ve found to help streamline and improve the efficiency and success of the process is Fluorescence-Activated Cell Sorting (FACS).

Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR-T) cell therapy
A growing number of CAR-T cell therapies are being developed and tested in clinical studies as an innovative approach to reprogram the patient’s immune system to attack its own abnormal cells. For treatment of certain cancers, as well as other diseases, this is a huge leap forward.

Editor’s Note: Here’s the second installment in a blog post series we’re excited to present in conjunction with our friend and colleague Dr. Oren Beske of ATUM. If you missed Oren’s first post on his climb to help the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, you can read it here.
Thanks for continuing this journey with us. Onward and, more importantly, upward!

We are occasionally asked about the success rate of different antibody platforms for drug discovery. There are a variety of technologies available for therapeutic antibody discovery: conventional mice where the Abs are humanized, human Ab transgenic rodents, human Ab synthetic phage and yeast libraries, and others.
