Performing ADCC Reporter Bioassay with an Environmentally Controlled Microplate Reader
Tecan Group Ltd.

The Promega ADCC Reporter Bioassay provides effector and target cells in frozen, thaw-and-use format, removing the need for isolating or culturing cells in order to perform the assay.

The CO2 and temperature control features of the Tecan Infinite® 200 PRO with GCM allow the assay induction to be performed without the requirement for a cell culture incubator.
Tag-lite® two-cell assay: a valuable tool for protein drug discovery
Tecan Group Ltd.

Antibodies are central mediators of the immune system, IgG being the most dominant. Binding of IgG/antigen complexes to membrane-bound Fc? receptors triggers a cellular immune response. Alterations in the Fc portion of the antibody by introducing mutations can lead to complete abolition of Fc? receptor binding. This describes the development of a cellbased TR-FRET assay to determine the simultaneous binding of an antibody to its antigen and huFc?RIIIa present on different cells.
Protein Purification Workflow Development Using Bio-Rad's NCO' Chromatography System
Bio-Rad Laboratories

High purity protein is a common requirement for biochemical and structural studies. A common approach is to recombinantly express an affinity-tagged version of the protein of interest. This is, however, not always a viable option. This application note discusses protein purification workflow development for untagged proteins and introduce a new indicator of method performance, the purity quotient difference.
