New antibody standard could aid biopharma development
The National Institute of Standards & Technology has a repository of approximately 1,200 reference materials that scientists can purchase to calibrate their instruments and establish quality-control protocols. The newest reference material, a monoclonal antibody, may be the agency’s most extensively characterized yet. The Y-shaped protein, which NIST released in late July, has undergone a battery of tests to comprehensively assess its composition, purity, and long-term stability. The reference material—dubbed NIST . . .
