The core provides researchers with access to state-of-the-art technologies for the generation of customized monoclonal antibodies, antibody-drug conjugates, and engineered antibody fragments tailored to meet the specific needs of individual research programs in disease prevention and treatement.


Major Equipment
• QPix 400 Colony Picking System - Combines intelligent image analysis with precise auomation for fast and efficient screening of large libraries. It can identify colonies with a desired phenotype, select colonies efficiently with capability of picking up to 3000 colonies per hour, and maintain Sterility.
• Neon Transfection System for Electroporation - A Second-generation transfection system that uses an electronic pipette tip as an electropoation chamber. The design and performance of the electronic pipette transfection chamber results in increased cell viability and transfection efficiency compared to traditional cuvette-based electroporation systems.
