Choosing the Right Expression System for Your Antigens
Developing a good immunoassay requires careful selection and appropriate use of high quality reagents. To maximise standardisation and biosafety, antigens are most commonly expressed heterologously from a range of different expression systems. However, with a dizzying number of cell lines to choose from, it can be difficult decide on the most appropriate for your protein and its specific application.
In this product guide, Research Scientist Louisa Emms provides an overview of The Native Antigen Company’s expression systems, and the advantages and disadvantages of each for producing viral antigens:
