Poster Title: Large-scale Characterization of Drug Candidates Against Transmembrane Receptors using HT-SPR

Presenter: Nicholas Abuid, Field Application Scientist, Carterra

Abstract: Membrane targets make up a substantial part of the overall “undruggable” therapeutic space that has recently garnered widespread interest. Despite encouraging improvements in the tools to screen for therapeutics against membrane-bound targets, there are still many practical limitations owing to the challenges of working with proteins that are not highly stable outside of the cellmembrane environment. High-throughput surface plasmon resonance (HT-SPR) is a powerful technique that is transforming characterization workflows and enabling a greater breadth and depth of information for drug candidates. Here we demonstrate the ability to quantitatively assess binding kinetics for panels of antibodies against membrane receptors in several formats. This workflow highlights opportunities to perform detailed binding characterization for up to thousands of drug candidates in parallel.
