The new workflow and reagents, to be commercially available by the end of the year, enable rapid, automated generation of antigen-specific, functional monoclonal antibodies from human memory B cells, building on prior workflows and reagents that used rabbit memory B cells and mouse plasma cells. Directly accessing the human repertoire with new workflow and reagents allows researchers to find more physiologically relevant and efficacious antibodies faster in a rapidly evolving biomedical field aimed at addressing infectious, autoimmune, and oncologic diseases.

Using the Opto Memory B Discovery Human workflow, PhenomeX estimates customers can:

  • Prepare memory B cells from a wide variety of traditional enrichment strategies for screening in <1 week;
  • Screen up to 60,000 single B cells per workflow in five days, depending on chip selection and number of chips used per workflow;
  • Identify hundreds to thousands of antigen-specific hits per workflow; and
  • Recover high-quality antibody sequences for the majority of discovered hits.

"We are excited to announce our continued innovation that enables antibody discovery customers to find high-value molecules against the most difficult targets in the shortest time possible," said Yan Zhang, Ph.D., chief commercial officer of PhenomeX. "Following the impacts our optofluidic technology had in discovering molecules that helped save lives during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and in providing researchers a platform to stay ahead of the endemic disease, we embarked on a journey to democratize a workflow that could dramatically cut timelines and costs to address human disease. Our customers can now rapidly screen, recover, and sequence memory B cells from human donors with unparalleled phenotypic depth in a single week, unlocking new research potential and preparedness in autoimmune, oncology, and infectious diseases."

The workflow broadens PhenomeX's market opportunity beyond rodent models, enabling direct discovery of high-value human antibodies that are well-suited for therapeutics, diagnostics, and research reagents without the explicit need for experimentation in animal models.
