Estimates for Frequently Used Hybridoma Core Services

Monoclonal Antibody Development Project
The investigator’s laboratory is responsible for screening of sera and culture supernatants. Consultation is available to help develop methods.  Costs will increase if more clones are expanded, cryopreserved, subcloned and etc.

Monoclonal Antibody Production in vitro in CELLine CL-1000 high density culture
Estimate does not include thawing or cryopreserving cells or weaning cells to a low serum growth media.  Harvest antibody concentrations typically range from 0.25 – 2.5 mg/ml; the total harvest volume in 30 days ranges from 60 - 120 ml.  CL-1000 flasks may be maintained and harvested for a longer time at an additional cost of  $1164.00 for each 30 day period.
