Industry News: Sphere Fluidics introduces Cyto-Cellect Human IgGK Detection Kit

First in a new range to advance identification and selection of cells with the highest productivity

17 Sep 2019


Sphere Fluidics, a company commercializing single cell analysis systems underpinned by its patented picodroplet technology, has introduced the Cyto-Cellect™ Human IgGK Detection Kit, to be used in conjunction with the Cyto-Mine® Single Cell Analysis System for rapid and cost-effective measurement of antibody class and productivity in cell line development. 

The Cyto-Cellect Human IgGK Detection Kit has been developed to provide Cyto-Mine users with an easy-to-use, standardized assay format for the detection of secreted human antibodies in picodroplets. The sensitive FRET-based assay rapidly detects the presence of human IgG with kappa light chain after secretion from encapsulated cells, to characterize and measure antibody production. Rapid detection of IgG enables high-throughput identification and selection of cells with the highest productivity for more efficient cell line development. 

With optimized ratios of Sphere Fluidics’ Human IgGK Detection probes, the Cyto-Cellect Human IgGK Detection Kit offers a sensitive and robust assay ideal for streamlining cell isolation and titer determination. The complete kit has been manufactured without the use of animal-derived materials, offering an animal-origin-free reagent kit that provides confidence in the reproducibility and consistency of the assay and conforms to regulatory requirements in cell line development.

Dr Zoe Nilsson, Global Product Marketing Manager, Sphere Fluidics, said: “Our expert team has applied extensive knowledge of assay requirements to develop the Cyto-Cellect Human IgGK Detection Kit, offering users a sensitive, yet robust assay solution for the Cyto-Mine platform. The addition of this assay-ready kit to Sphere Fluidics’ product portfolio provides a rapid, yet cost-effective solution to further support and reduce cell line development timelines.”
