Rigorous specificity analysis is critical for successful drug development and a safety requirement for monoclonal antibody (mAb) based therapies, such as CAR-T, entering IND. Tissue cross-reactivity (TCR) studies have been traditionally used to screen for off-target binding, however, with poor predictive value for in vivo safety and toxicity.
Integral Molecular has developed the Membrane Proteome Array (MPA) platform to de-risk mAb-based therapeutics by testing specificity across the full human membrane proteome expressed in live cells. Using sensitive high-throughput flow cytometry to identify binding interactions on a protein level, this technology has emerged as the leading solution for antibody specificity profiling.
