MVA Good Morning Meeting – Therapeutic Recombinant Antibody Development

– Breaking through the current limitations

Recombinant antibodies are highly specific detection probes in research, diagnostics, and have emerged over the last two decades as the fastest growing class of therapeutic proteins. Mammalian cell lines, especially the Chinese Hamster ovary (CHO) cell line, represent the most widely used expression systems for the production of these recombinant antibodies.

This is thanks to the capability of CHO cells to produce high quality biologics that can exhibit human-like, post-translational modifications in gram-scale quantities. However, biopharmaceutical production processes utilizing CHO cells still suffer from inherent cellular limitations such as limited growth, low productivity, as well as higher production costs compared to bacteria or yeast based expression systems.

Therefore, Genscript Biotech has sought to address these problems with our novel “TurboCHO™” platform.

Our seminar will present:

  • Applications of recombinant antibodies in therapeutic approaches
  • Generation of recombinant antibodies via antibody engineering
  • Insight into GenScript Biotech’s TurboCHO™ Expression System for recombinant antibody production
