Equitech-Bio will produce high quality ascites fluid utilizing the researcher's
monoclonal antibody producing hybridoma cell line. This program relieves the researcher
of the expense of maintaining a required animal facility. Equitech-Bio bases the
cost on a specified volume rather than the number of animals required.
We require a stable secreting cell line and information regarding the line's culture
characteristics. We will establish the line in our laboratory, cryopreserve stock,
and perform a test run to determine optimum conditions. Ascites production is preformed
in BALB/C mice or a strain of the researcher's choice. (Some strains of mice may
require an adjustment in price.) At the end of the production run, we will provide
the researcher with the desired volume of fluid, a sample for testing, and an electrophoretic
profile indicating the level of monoclonal antibody. The cell line is then destroyed
unless other arrangements have been made. No guarantee is expressed or implied concerning
the level of monoclonal antibody or other components supplied in the contracted
volume of ascites. For details, please contact us.
