Genmab Expands use of IDBS’ ActivityBase Xtended Edition in Hybridoma Discovery
News Sep 12, 2007
IDBS has announced that Genmab BV (Utrecht, The Netherlands) has extended its use of ActivityBase Xtended Edition (ActivityBase XE) within its Hybridoma Discovery department.
Genmab initially purchased ActivityBase XE in 2006 to handle the design, capture, storage and retrieval of their plate-based screening data. Following the implementation, Genmab has more than doubled the number of ActivityBase XE licenses.
With multiple monoclonal antibody products currently in development or under evaluation to treat cancer, inflammatory conditions and infectious diseases, international biotechnology company Genmab sought a data management solution that had the flexibility to handle the data produced from the functional screening of human monoclonal antibody therapies.
ActivityBase XE enables scientists at Genmab to capture, validate and visualize the data from antibody screening in a contextually rich environment.
Arnout Gerritsen, Sr. Manager of Lead Identification at Genmab, commented: “The introduction of ActivityBase XE into our Hybridoma Discovery department has significantly improved the efficiency of our human antibody screening campaigns.
The flexibility inherent within the ActivityBase XE module enables us to use both Excel and non-Excel templates in our analysis.” He added: “Providing a context around the screening results has promoted a better understanding and enhanced decision making.”
New Chemical Synthesis Process: Synergy of Two Catalysts in One FlaskNews
Researchers report the one-step synthesis of a ketone from an aldehyde by the combination of thiazolium N-heterocyclic carbene and palladium/bisphosphine catalysts in one flask. The two catalysts function in a synergistic manner. This study is expected to lead to new synthesis processes of precursor compounds for medications.READ MORE
