Memo Therapeutics Announces the Development of a Droplet Sorter Enabling Functional Antibody Screening in a High-Throughput Format

| MEMO Therapeutics

This novel microfluidic droplet sorter will be deployed downstream of the MemoMAB antibody repertoire biobanking platform to enable functional screening in high througput format with a series of functional assays such as:

 

  • Cell-binding
  • Virus-neutralization
  • Identification of agonistic/antagonistic antibodies
  • ADCC assays


“This is a major step in the technology development at Memo since we are now able to directly screen antibody repertoire libraries from rare patients or immunized animals for antibodies with the desired functional activity in a single day. “ says Dr. Christoph Esslinger, CSO. Dr. Karsten Fischer, CEO, comments: “Having such a tool at hand will enable us to pick the optimal antibody development candidates out of diverse repertoires for our own pipeline and attract high-profile partnerships with pharmaceutical companies.”

On the coprorate side, Memo has followed the planned trajectory and has moved its premises to State-of-the-art laboratories at Schlieren and launched a new corporate design including a new web site that can be visited at:
