The timeline to identify and develop clinically effective neutralizing antibodies against viral particles from bench to patient is 18 to 24 months. The race to identify effective neutralizing antibodies against the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 virus becomes even more pressing as the global death rate continues to climb unimpeded during this COVID-19 pandemic. Using a combination of the CloneSelect instruments from Molecular Devices screening platforms, such as the single cell printer and imager, the timeline for preclinical development of effective neutralizing antibodies can be significantly shortened.
In this webinar, we demonstrate the steps from clonal selection to cell growth tracking to image-based assurance of monoclonality. The image-based monoclonality report is then generated to be included in the global licensing applications such as the Biologics License application (BLA) to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
