Lead Identification Unit

The Lead Identification (LI) unit drives the discovery and identification of high-quality candidate therapeutic antibodies as well as tool antibodies required by other units for the establishment of assay systems and proof of concept studies. In order to achieve maximum output of lead antibodies, high-throughput systems play a major part in the selection and screening processes. The LI unit is equipped with flow cytometers for high-speed sorting, automation workstations and liquid handling systems to accelerate workflow, allowing for the screening of thousands of antibodies within a short period of time.
