Kinetic Screening of Antibodies From Crude Hybridoma Samples Using Biacore

Abstract

Experimental and data analysis protocols were developed to screen antibodies from hybridoma culture supernatants using Biacore surface plasmon resonance biosensor platforms. The screening methods involved capturing antibodies from crude supernatants using Fc-specific antibody surfaces and monitoring antigen binding at a single concentration. After normalizing the antigen responses for the amount of antibody present, a simple interaction model was fit to all of the binding responses simultaneously. As a result, the kinetic rate constants (k(a) and k(d)) and affinity (K(D)) could be determined for each antibody interaction under identical conditions. Higher-resolution studies involving multiple concentrations of antigen were performed to validate the reliability of single-concentration measurements. The screening protocols can be used to characterize antigen binding kinetics to approximately 200 antibody supernatants per day using automated Biacore 2000 and 3000 instruments.
