Modern gene technology combined with efficient microbial expression systems provides tools to produce antibodies with reduced functional size and improved binding properties as well as antibody fusions or novel antibodies.
Surface plasmon resonance based biosensors, which measure antigen–antibody interactions in real-time, can be used for a diverse characterization of the modified antibodies. To date, the majority of published work originates from real-time biospecific interaction analysis based on the BIAcore® instruments.
This article describes the range of applications in antibody engineering in which BIAcore has been applied.
