Research Area

Our hybridoma and antibody lab was established with integrated antibody production and purification technologies to assist the research community in School of Life Sciences at Xiamen University and others since 2008. We produce both polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies starting from peptides, proteins or name of the gene. Antibodies we produced already led to important discoveries published on some top journals such as Science and Cell affiliated journal.

Beyond providing high quality antibody services to our research community, we are also focusing on developing special antibodies for cancer drug development and cancer diagnosis with selected targets based on our long-standing experience and interest in cancer drug discovery and cancer research.
