QuickSwitch™ Quant HLA-DRB1*01:01 Tetramer Kit-PE



QuickSwitch™ Class II Tetramer Peptide Exchange and Quantitation Kit utilizes a patented technique for exchanging up to ten peptides on an MHC Class II Tetramer. Reduce time and cost with this kit to create your own custom tetramers or to test which peptide sequence has the best peptide-MHC binding affinity.  This kit can be used for screening multiple peptides or to create a small amount of your own custom Tetramer in house.  The resulting custom tetramers can be used for multiple applications including screening immunogenic peptides, neoantigen discovery, and many other assays downstream from in-silico  selection.
