ImmunoPrecise Antibodies Increases Discovery Capabilities to Help Pinpoint Lead Drug Candidates with Addition of Octet HTX

VICTORIA, May 6, 2020 /- IMMUNOPRECISE ANTIBODIES LTD. (the “Company” or “IPA”) (TSX VENTURE: IPA) (OTC QB: IPATF), a provider of best-in-class therapeutic antibody discovery capabilities for the global industry, today announced its laboratory in Victoria, BC, has leased a high throughput, label-free Octet HTX biosensor from FortéBio. This analytical tool addresses ImmunoPrecise’s need for increased speed and sample throughput when characterizing large panels of therapeutic antibody candidates.

The Octet HTX offers dramatic time savings for researchers studying the binding interactions of hundreds of drug candidates by producing high quality data supported with analysis tools allowing data-driven decisions to be made with confidence. It is especially useful in early-stage screening to guide the library-to-leads triage and cut time and costs.

“The need for higher analytical throughput is a central theme within our pharma and biopharmaceutical customers,” noted Yasmina Abdiche, Chief Scientific Officer at ImmunoPrecise. “We believe that the HTX system’s throughput, versatility, reliability and ease of use will accelerate our discovery efforts towards identifying clinically-ready leads.”
