MDACC Recombinant Antibody Production Core

Overview of Services

The Recombinant Antibody Production Core (RAPC) provides custom recombinant monoclonal antibodies to investigators in a rapid, high-throughput, and cost-effective manner. Our methodology overcomes many of the issues with classical methods, namely lackluster antibody reproducibility and characterization, and is particularly well suited for generating antibodies against challenging targets such as antigens with single amino acid polymorphisms and post-translational modifications. We also offer engineering of recombinant antibodies to provide enhanced features such as fluorescent or affinity tags. 

Services:

  • Recombinant Antibody Project Consultation (Feasibility, Antigen Design)
  • Recombinant Antibody Production, Purification, and Characterization
  • Recombinant Antibody Engineering
  • Hybridoma Rescue
