Express Discovery

Knowledge is power – obtaining as much high-quality information as possible early on in the protein bioprocessing workflow will be sure to set you up for success. When screening candidates and profiling immune responses can be done rapidly and effectively in the discovery stages, your downstream processes become quicker, cheaper and simpler.

Bio-techne can help you fast-track your discovery stages with automated and innovative solutions.

Multiplex with Luminex®

Understanding how the immune system responds to your candidate therapeutic can make or break its success.

The earlier you have this data, the better - but running multiple assays for all your candidate therapeutics can take a lot of your sample, time and resources.

Discover a better way with ready-to-run and customizable Luminex cytokine panels. Save sample, time and money with quick, comprehensive immune profiling comparable to conventional assays – like ELISA and qPCR – with greater efficiency and throughput.

Simple Screening with Simple Western

Screening candidates is a key step in protein discovery – but the semi-quantitative, labor-intensive, and time-consuming nature of Western blotting can let you down.

Let our Simple Western™ platforms bring you back up! For super-fast, high-throughput antibody screening with quantitative results you can rely on, Simple Western technology is the simple choice.

The early bird catches the worm. Get ahead of your competition in the early stages of your workflow - rapidly perform charge distribution of mAbs, antibody screening, clone selection product titer, identity, and degradation analyses with Simple Western.
