A Proprietary Set of Wildtype Mice Designed to Achieve Maximum Plasma Titers in Hybridoma Campaigns

Conventional immunization approaches utilized in hybridoma-based antibody discovery campaigns typically use one or two common wildtype (WT) mouse strains (e.g. Balb/c or C57Bl/6). LakePharma’s scientists have noted through a course of over 100 campaigns that this approach likely limits the identification of high-quality antibodies to just those target antigens that are efficiently processed and presented by a restricted major histocompatibility complex (MHC) repertoire.

LakePharma’s PentaMice™ Platform is a royalty-free set of mice comprising 5 WT strains that cover 9 distinct MHC haplotypes. A total of 10 mice (2 mice of each strain) are included in each set to achieve maximum plasma titers, thus boosting the opportunity to generate high-quality antibodies in vivo.
