Big Data-Aided Target Mining


Target validation remains a bottleneck for the development of innovative medicines, primarily due to the complexity of the biology and pathology of a given disease. The true link between a disease and a molecular target is still largely established in late stage clinical trials.

Antibody Phage Display


Developed by GP Smith (2018 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry), phage display technique has been widely used in peptide, protein, as well as antibody engineering. Encapsulating the ssDNA gene, phage particles display the protein encoded by the gene on the surface, providing a physical linkage between phenotype and genotype.

Hybridoma Antibody Discovery


The hybridoma technology is a traditional but still widely used method to produce monoclonal antibodies. The B lymphocytes secrete monoclonal antibodies but cannot replicate themselves in culture. On the other hand, the myeloma cells do not produce antibody but can replicate in culture easily.

LEMMAbTM

LEMMAbTM (Linker Enhanced Mono-chained Multi-specific Antibody) is our proprietary technology platform that uses natural IgG with Fc in constructing bispecific or multi-specific antibody for cutting-edge biomedical research and development. Owing to the single chain and symmetrical nature, LEMMAbTM antibodies resulting from this technology are free of mismatches, more soluble, less prone to aggregate, simpler to purify, and expressed in higher yield. These types of antibodies tend to have decreased immunogenicity and improved binding affinity, safety profiles, and developability.

Sparx SMARTOPTM

SMARTOPTM (Symmetric Multispecific Antibodies with Relative-affinities fine-Tuned by phage Off-rate and PH-selections) is another proprietary antibody research and development platform in the field of bispecific or multi-specific antibody construction. SMARTOPTM shares several features with LEMMAbTM and this type of antibodies are also symmetrical and free of mismatches, more soluble, less prone to aggregate, simpler to purify, and expressed in higher yield. In addition, SMARTOPTM antibodies are selected by slower off-rate and better tolerance for the lower pH values in tumor microenvironment. As a result, this type of antibodies tends to have improved tumor retention and more tailored target engaging kinetics. They also enjoy decreased immunogenicity and improved binding affinity, safety profiles, and developability.
