Developing tools, reagents and assays to advance understanding in the field of veterinary immunology.
The Roslin Institute and The Pirbright Institute welcome applications from researchers wishing to make use of the Immunological Toolbox facility funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, UK.
This service focuses on the expansion of the veterinary reagent portfolio through the production and characterisation of immunological reagents, developing new tools, reagents and assays to advance understanding in the field of veterinary immunology. This will broaden the potential for research projects that are currently limited by the lack of available reagents.
Services offered include:
- Protein expression
- De novo generation of monoclonal antibodies
- Assay development
- Monoclonal antibody sequencing
- Cloning & expression of recombinant antibodies
Each project can be individually tailored according to requirements. Additional advice on protocols and procedures is also available through discussion with facility staff and tailored quotes for specific reagent development will be provided according to our agreed costing structure.
Projects will be prioritised by a steering committee taking into account the nature of the tool(s) requested, their utility, community requirements and accessibility.
