  • Publication number: 20240151720
    Abstract: Herein is reported a novel, high throughput suitable method for the characterization and identification as well as selection of recombinant cell clones expressing a bispecific antibody with high titers and low levels of antibody-related side products. The method according to the current invention uses the binding signals of an immunoassay-based screening of recombinant cell clone cultivation supernatants for isolated as well as simultaneous binding to the respective targets of the antibody. This data allows for the selection of high producer cell clones with desired product profile.

  • Publication number: 20240122469
    Abstract: A virtual reality system for quantifying functional visual capabilities of a user at varying assessment conditions (e.g., varying light, contrast, color conditions), using a head-mountable display. In addition to the high relevance to users with optical conditions, the present embodiments can lead to rapid and simple measurements within the controlled and reproducible testing conditions that virtual reality can offer. The virtual environment system can obtain a selection of a task to be performed. During execution of the task, a virtual environment optical setting (e.g., a modified lighting setting in the virtual environment display) can be dynamically modified. The user can interact with the objects during execution of the task, which can provide an insight into functional visual capabilities of the user. After completion of the task, an output can be generated that quantifies a functional visual capability of the user during execution of the task.

  • Patent number: 11958912
    Abstract: Herein is reported a method for determining the binding interaction with a multimeric antigen of an antibody of the human IgG1 subclass that has at least two binding sites specifically binding to the antigen comprising the steps of 1) determining the binding affinity of the antibody for the multimeric antigen, and 2) incubating a mixture comprising the antibody and a polypeptide that is derived from lysine-gingipain of Porphyromonas gingivalis under conditions and for a time sufficient to cleave the antibody into Fabs and Fc-region, and determining the binding affinity of the Fabs of the antibody for the multimeric, whereby the binding affinity of the antibody to the multimeric antigen to be affinity-driven if the binding affinity determined in both steps are comparable and to be avidity-driven if the binding affinity determined in both steps are different.
