Our academic Production facility produces and distributes, to academic users, antibodies either discovered by us or custom-made based on a known aminoacid sequence.
Our standard format is a mini-antibody with the scFv antigen-binding portion fused to an Fc (see figure below). Our current offer of Fc portions are: rabbit IgG; human IgG1 and IgG2; mouse IgG1, IgG2A and IgG2B; guinea pig IgG (Note: if you do not state otherwise, we will use human IgG1 and mouse IgG2A). They can be used with all standard secondary reagents, essentially using the same procedures and reagents used with standard antibodies.
All antibodies already produced by us, or that can be custom-made, are described in the ABCD database. To order, search for your antibody and click on the desired Fc format. Every ordered antibody has a fix cost of CHF 200.- (taxes and delivery included).
If the antibody you wish to produce is not on the database, and you have the sequence, you can send us the information. Your antibody will be produced, and the antibody will be incorporated at the ABCD database (with an ABCD identifier attributed). In order to submit a new antibody, click here.
We deliver non-purified cell supernatants in serum-free HEK293 cells with a concentration that can reach 50-100 mg/L. For each antibody produced, we will let you know the yield obtained. Note that different antibodies are produced with very different and unpredictable yields, especially when the antibody is produced by the first time at our facility. In some cases, only low or very low amounts of antibody will be produced. In this situation, no reimbursement is possible.
For antibodies produced for the first time, delivery time is 4 weeks. For antibodies already produced in our facility, delivery time is 2 weeks.
You can also obtain the plasmid containing the antibody coding sequence. This might be useful for researchers wanting to produce, for example, intrabodies or antibodies fused with chromophores. To order antibody-encoding plasmids, click here.

This offer is restricted to non-profit organizations; prices for commercial entities are available upon request. All antibodies are available for academic research and fundamental research projects. They cannot be used for any commercial purpose.
