  • Stop Crying in the Lab: How Cry Antibodies Can Help Your Research

    Wed, 16 Jun 2021 12:45:47 GMTBy: deane.buckley@mblintl.com (Deane Buckley)

    Tiredness and frustration often mount after long nights in the lab. Why can’t our bodies adjust and allow us to maintain our energy through the night? The answer lies in our circadian rhythms. Circadian rhythms are the daily cycle of biological processes such as wakefulness and metabolism1. Many proteins are involved in regulating our circadian rhythms including CRY proteins. This blog post will catch you up on these proteins and their vital role in regulating circadian rhythms. Read more
  • Why should you use Isotype Control Antibodies

    Thu, 18 Mar 2021 20:17:21 GMTBy:

    Good experimental design is key to accurate and precise drug development. Isotype control antibodies, designed and deployed properly, optimize study performance and data analysis in therapeutic antibody research.
    What are Isotype Control Antibodies?

    Isotype control antibodies are negative controls used to accurately measure antibody drug effects and efficacy for in vitro and in vivo monoclonal antibody (mAb) studies. Isotype controls match the test/primary antibody characteristics, but are raised against antigens not found in common preclinical species; this means that isotype controls lack specificity for the target antigen.
    In both in vivo and in vitro assays, a signal can result from various binding events. In order to accurately interpret assay results, it is critical to differentiate between binding events such as:

    mAb binding in an antigen-dependent specific manner.
    mAb binding in a non-antigen dependent manner, due to interaction with Fc receptors (FcR) or other proteins.

    Isotype control antibodies provide an ideal negative control for mAb efficacy studies, enabling researchers to accurately distinguish between non-specific background and specific antibody signal. Read more

  • Human MHC Class II QuickSwitch™ Platform is used to Identify SARS-CoV-2 Virus Derived Peptides

    Wed, 20 Jan 2021 18:00:00 GMTBy:

    In our previous blog post (How to screen SARS-CoV-2 peptides to facilitate T cell research) we have described how the immune system samples all of the pathogenic proteins by looking at the small fragments of each protein and making a determination on whether that fragment (also referred to as peptide) belongs in the body.
