DANVERS, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cell Signaling Technology, Inc. (CST) of Danvers, MA is pleased to announce the development of a new discovery platform for antigen-specific monoclonal antibodies. This novel antibody discovery technology, named NG-XMTTM, harnesses the power of proteomics to identify and clone antigen-specific monoclonal antibodies directly from the circulating serum of an immunized animal. As described in the May print issue of Nature Biotechnology [30, 447 – 452 (2012)], NG-XMTTM technology enables the isolation of monoclonal antibodies with antigen-specific activities that recapitulate or surpass those of the original affinity-purified polyclonal antibodies found in the sera of immunized rabbits and mice.
