Immunotherapy is a type of treatment that uses the body's own immune system to fight diseases, including cancer. One of the key players in immunotherapy is antibodies. 

Antibodies, also known as immunoglobulins, are proteins produced by B-cells that play a critical role in the immune system. They are responsible for identifying and neutralizing foreign substances, such as bacteria and viruses, by binding to them and marking them for destruction by other immune cells. 

In recent years, researchers have discovered that antibodies can also be used to target cancer cells. Antibody-based immunotherapies work by using monoclonal antibodies, which are antibodies that are made in the laboratory to target specific proteins on cancer cells. When the monoclonal antibodies bind to the cancer cells, they can trigger an immune response that leads to the destruction of the cancer cells. 

At Biointron, we are dedicated to accelerating antibody discovery for the development of new immunotherapies. Our expertise in antibody screening, engineering, and production allows us to provide high-quality antibody services that are critical to the success of immunotherapy research. 

Through our state-of-the-art manufacturing and automation process, we are able to deliver antibody products that meet international standards in terms of quality, purity, and potency. By working with us, our clients can rest assured that they are receiving the highest quality antibodies for their research and development needs. 

As the field of immunotherapy continues to grow and evolve, we are committed to staying at the forefront of antibody discovery and production. With our expertise and dedication to quality, we are proud to play a key role in the development of new immunotherapies that have the potential to transform the way we treat cancer and other diseases.

The therapeutic efficacy of antibodies is closely related to their ability to recognize and bind specific epitopes on target antigens. Epitopes, or antigenic determinants, are a group of amino acids or other chemical groups that are part of a molecule to which an antibody attaches itself. Epitope characterization can help reveal the mechanism of antibody binding and apply intellectual property (patent) protection for novel antibodies, in addition to designing antibodies with high specificity and minimal cross-reactivity.

Understanding the differences between antibody specificity and selectivity is essential for designing and interpreting antibody-based assays in research for experimental accuracy and data interpretation. Antibody specificity refers to an antibody's ability to recognize and bind to a particular epitope—a unique part of an antigen that elicits an immune response.

Antibody-based assays are essential tools in biomedical research, providing the means to detect, quantify, and visualize specific proteins or antigens within complex biological samples. These assays' efficacy hinges on the antibodies' precise properties. While affinity, avidity, specificity, and selectivity are fundamental to antibody performance, the ultimate impact of these properties is heavily influenced by the experimental context in which the antibody is employed.

Biologics, particularly antibodies, have become indispensable in biomedical research and therapeutic development. Research-use-only (RUO) biologics play a pivotal role in preclinical studies, providing researchers with the necessary tools to explore antibody functions and therapeutic potential in vivo.
