Staphylococcus aureus is a type of bacteria that about 30% of people carry in their noses. Most of the time, staph does not cause any harm, however staph can cause infections. Approaches to detect MRSA include culture methods and molecular techniques.
S. agalactiae is a gram-positive coccus with a tendency to form chains, beta-haemolytic, catalase negative, and facultative anaerobe.
Methods to detect GBS are based on nucleic acid amplification test and hybridation probes.
Coris Bioconcept is active into rapid diagnostic tests based on immunochromatography technology and wanted to develop sandwich ELISA immuno-assay.
SynAbs has generated two monoclonal antibodies in two different species thanks to its unique immunization approach and then develop custom sandwich ELISA immuno-assay.
"Coris had identified two promising targets and wished to ultimately develop sandwich ELISA to quantify these biomarkers. The unique approach of SynAbs with multi-species immunization has allowed the generation of high affinity mAbs both in rat and mouse. These two mAbs are now the very basis of our sandwich immuno-assay! "
