Price Schedule for Monoclonal Antibody Production

including Ascites Production

effective 10/1/2015

Monoclonal Antibody Production by In-Vivo Methods (Ascites Production) - $399

Price per cell line, includes cell line preparation (when provided with Mycoplasma free live cell line) for immunization into 5 Balb/c Mice ( or another hybridoma specific strain maybe additional),  all necessary procedures and husbandry for a typical production run which is based on removing ascites fluid a maximum of 3 times per mouse followed by euthanasia and disposal. Yields differ greatly between cell lines but if the line is a reasonable producer, 3 to 10 ml per mouse can be anticipated.

Each additional mouse added to production run by passing on the line from mouse to mouse - $65

Protein G Purification of Ascites Fluid
approximate yield 0.5 to 2mg or > /ml of neat ascites fluid.
25 ml or less - $325
up to 50 ml - $550
up to 100 ml - $725

Custom Monoclonal Antibody Production by In-Vitro Methods -  $1,450

Yield of approximately 50 - 200mg per batch The customer's cell line is amplified using three liter tissue culture polyethylene bags. Monoclonal antibodies are isolated using a protein G column. Available only for IgG producing lines.

Other protocols are available and the success with a certain protocol is dependent on the cell line. Please consult with our technical staff prior to starting an in vitro project.

Initial Cell Culture - $375

When lines are supplied to us frozen.  We will culture, expand, and assess quality prior to ascites or in vitro production (ELISA method)

Amplification & Cryopreservation

10 vials at 1 to 2 million cells per vial per line, including storage for the first year in liquid nitrogen - $450
Each additional year of storage - $250
