VICTORIA, February 4th, 2019 / – IMMUNOPRECISE ANTIBODIES LTD. (the “Company” or “IPA”) (TSX VENTURE: IPA) (OTC PINK: IPATF) has announced the purchase of its second state-of-the-art Intellicyt® iQue Screener PLUS for high-throughput cell-based screening.

The demand for accelerated development of next-generation antibodies that recognize evermore challenging targets and have improved activities has prompted IPA to purchase further instrumentation to evaluate more antibody characteristics in a multiplexed, high-throughput way.  Traditional antibody screening tools report on binding one target at a time, which makes the discovery process time consuming and can require large amounts of target protein. The Intellicyt iQue allows IPA scientists to significantly reduce lead discovery time while conserving valuable samples and reducing reagent cost.

“The decision to acquire a second Intellicyt iQue [now for North America] will further support IPA’s strategic vision of continued growth and expansion in providing end-to-end therapeutic antibody discovery services to a rapidly expanding list of pharma and biotech clients.” said Jennifer Bath, CEO and President of ImmunoPrecise Antibodies.

The iQue Screener PLUS can analyze antibodies developed from all of IPA’s antibody discovery platforms, hybridoma, B cell select, and phage display, on cells or beads in suspension. The early stage screening of antibodies on cell surface targets provides more predictable data and enables the selection of lead candidate drugs earlier and faster. In addition, the iQue provides early data on the activities of lead drugs to improve the probability for downstream successes.
