Real-Time PCR Solutions for Monoclonal Antibody Development

Overview

Save time developing and characterizing recombinant monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) from discovery through clinical trials and manufacturing by incorporating genetic-level analysis into your workflows. Leverage the sensitivity and dependability of Applied Biosystems QualTrak biopharma-specific real-time PCR (qPCR) workflows to identify and characterize antigens, develop and validate clones and cell lines, and detect even low levels of contamination to help ensure the safety and efficacy of your products.

QualTrak mAb workflow

The QualTrak mAB workflow includes qPCR use cases across all steps of the development pipeline from discovery to GMP manufacturing.
