Epitomics, Inc. and University of California, Davis, Complete Star Program for High-Throughput Measurement of Antibody-Antigen Interactions
Date:12/21/2011

BURLINGAME, Calif., Dec. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Epitomics, Inc., a California based biotech company, announced today that they have successfully completed a Star Program in collaboration with the University of California, Davis, which has resulted in the application of a new, advanced antibody assay technique, a label-free optical microarray detection platform, for high-throughput measurements of antibody-antigen interactions. Over the course of the project, more than 100 rabbit monoclonal antibodies (RabMAbs) raised against clinical cancer biomarkers were analyzed and determined to possess affinities ranging from 10-9 to 10-13 M, with an average of 10-10 M. The affinity values measured using this label-free optical microarray detection process were found to be consistent with those measured using the established BIAcore technology, based on a random sampling of the RabMAb population.

"I am very excited about our new technology which can provide consistent results compared to the established BIAcore technology but in a high throughput manner.  I am also impressed with high affinities of RabMAbs," said Dr. Xiangdong Zhu, a Professor in Physics at the University of California, Davis, who was the inventor of the label-free optical microarray detection technology used in the program.

"It is widely accepted that rabbits produce higher affinity antibodies than mice, but this had not previously been demonstrated with a large population of monoclonal antibodies. With the availability of this novel technology, we were able to demonstrate that RabMAbs have consistently high affinities through the measurement of a large collection of RabMAbs," said Dr. Guo-Liang Yu, CEO, Epitomics, Inc.
