Cell-based assays (iLite®)

iLite technology is based upon a reporter gene assay format, modified and adapted for applications during the whole drug development cycle as well as for monitoring of biological drugs.

iLite cell lines can be developed for any biopharmaceutical target and assays for drug potency, i.e. drug activity, and neutralizing antibodies (NAbs) can easily be set-up using the same cell line. All cell lines are supplied as Assay Ready Cells, which does not need culturing, and can be used straight from the freezer.
