Breakfast & Biotech with Biocytogen
Biocytogen eagerly invites fellow industrial partners and colleagues to join us for a Biotech and Breakfast session at the MassBio Hub.
About this event
Therapeutic antibodies represent an increasing share of new drug approvals and a current global market well in excess of $100B. Their research and development, however, is fraught with significant risks and many promising candidates fail to reach the clinic due to inefficient workflows and insufficient preclinical evaluation.
Biocytogen’s state-of-the-art screening technologies and humanized antibody mouse platforms de-risk the entire enterprise of antibody drug discovery and development. Join us to learn how to generate higher quality hits, and perform high-throughput screening of top candidates.
Among the topics we will discuss are:
- The advantages of high-throughput single B cell screening technologies (the Beacon® Optofluidics System and FACS) for antibody discovery.
- Therapeutic discovery using our fully human antibody mice to generate antibodies with high affinity and broad diversity.
