BioVeris announced this week that it has launched eight new products for use in life science research to measure potential immune response to protein-based therapeutics that are in development.
According to the company, two of the products are pharmacodynamic biomarkers, which detect human IL-2 and TNF-alpha and measure cytokine levels that may be elevated due to a drug treatment response.
The other six products can be used for immunogenicity testing, assay development, and hybridoma screening. “The products are composed of a panel of antibodies that are prelabeled with BioVeris’ detection label BV-TAG Plus and may be used to quantitate and characterize the following mouse antibodies: IgM, IgG, IgG1, IgG2a, IgG2b, and IgG3,” the company said in a statement.
