Don’t miss the last webinar in our Antibody Validation series!
The Antibody Society has invited leaders in antibody research from industry and academia to reflect on antibody validation. They paint a uniformly alarming picture of inadequacies at many levels – which encourages users to be highly aware of the consequences of inadequate tool antibody validation, which threaten their biological endeavors.

Speaker: Dr. Andreas Plückthun
Future recombinant binding tools may avoid antibodies, and use diversified libraries based on small and versatile protein scaffolds, for example the DARPins (Designed Ankyrin Repeat Proteins). DARPins are single-chain, monodisperse, and non-immunogenic, and can be made rapidly and cheaply in bacteria in many formats. They can also be expressed in and on cells as non-aggregating fusion proteins with tunable valencies, which opens a wide range of previously- inaccessible approaches in cell biology and biochemistry.
