Product details:

The iLite® ADCC Activity Set contains 3 different genetically modified cell lines; a reporter Effector cell, a positive Target cell and a negative Target cell. All three products can be supplied individually or in combination as iLite® ADCC Activity Set. These Activity sets enables measurements of an anti-targeted drug’s ability to induce ADCC, does not require any cell culturing and allow results to be read within 4 hours. In addition, the Effector cells, which can be used with any Target cell, include a normalization readout which can be used to adjust for differences in cell counts.

Target cells for HER2. EGFR and membrane bound TNF- alpha will be the first to be launched, followed by shortly by CD20 Target cells.

The unique set-up of Assay Ready effector cells and matched target cells, engineered to work optimally together, gives unparalleled sensitivity and with the launch of the first products in the iLite® ADCC product line, we can successfully assist clients with accelerating their drug discovery and development programs” adds Therese Segerstein, Product Manager Cell Based Assays.

Check out our newest addition to the Svar Life Science Complement range – the Complement C4d Assay!

Svar Life Science, is excited to launch a C4d Assay Kit. C4d can be used as a complement activity marker for the classical and lectin pathways and the assay is targeting a unique cleavage epitope on C4d, which means that only the C4d is measured.

The complement system plays an essential role in autoimmune and infectious diseases. There are three pathways of complement activation; the classical, the alternative and the lectin pathway.

The C4d protein is a product of the classical and the lectin pathways and now Svar Life Science has developed a C4d Elisa kit to measure C4d in human plasma.

The Svar Life Science complement C4d assay is a highly specific complement activity marker for the classical and lectin pathway.

The Svar C4d assay:

  • Detect both variants of C4d
  • Targeted to the C4d unique cleavage epitope
  • User friendly format - ready to use reagents & short incubation times
