In the current competitive biotherapeutic market, predominantly driven by antibody molecules, bispecific antibodies represent a key component of the next generation of antibody therapy. Immunoglobulin G (IgG), the most common type of antibody found in blood circulation, are monospecific and recognize only a single antigen, with the exception of IgG4. In contrast, bispecific antibodies are designed to recognize and bind to two different targets.

This is useful as a therapeutic as they can be designed to redirect, for instance, immune cells such as T cells, to selectively engage and eliminate target tumor cells, by allowing effective binding of tumor cell receptors while also recruiting cytotoxic immune cells. In addition, bispecific antibodies can assist in the delivery of therapeutic payloads, such as toxins or drugs, to specific sites in the body.

There are several approaches to producing bispecific antibodies, with the common methods being:

  • Knobs-in-holes

  • Ig-scFv fusion

  • Diabody-Fc fusion

  • Dual-Variable-Domain-IgG


Biointron has expressed thousands of bispecific antibodies, and we have extensive experience in bispecific antibody production. We take pride in our ability to cater to any client request, offering a wide array of formats in bispecific antibody production.

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.
