Expert Insight: Accelerating nanobody discovery with advanced flow cytometry

Watch this webinar to find out how to accelerate your workflow using high-throughput flow cytometry

22 Oct 2019


In this webinar, we look at how nanobody discovery and screening platforms exploit high-throughput flow cytometry to increase the throughput of nanobody screening campaigns.


Pieter Kennis will present the webinar

Nanobodies are small, single-domain antibody fragments that retain full antigen-binding capabilities and the properties of heavy-chain antibodies. While antibodies are set to be increasingly important as therapeutic options for cancer and other diseases, the discovery of fully functional antibodies that lack light chains in Camelidae (camels and llamas) has opened the door to an exciting new generation of therapeutic antibodies known as nanobodies.

Unlike conventional antibodies, the heavy-chain antibodies of Camelidae contain a single variable domain (VHH) and two constant domains (CH2 and CH3) only. Using these functional antibodies as a base, nanobodies have been created and represent the next generation in antibody-derived biologics.

Join Dr. Pieter Kennis to learn about:

  • Efficient labeling of multiple cell lines for simultaneous analysis
  • Multiplexed nanobody screening, assay setup, and analysis to screen for compound binding (with examples from nanobody discovery campaigns)
  • Nanobody characterization – semi-automated data analysis to determine EC50 values from dose-response binding.
