Berkeley Lights will showcase its Beacon® Optofluidic System and single B-cell antibody discovery workflows at AE&T booth #401. Meeting participants who visit the Berkeley Lights booth can receive a demonstration of the Opto® B Discovery workflows on the Beacon Optofluidic System that enable functional profiling of the B cell repertoire to discover a broad diversity of antibody hits and rapidly down-select lead candidates.

In addition, Berkeley Lights will discuss its recently launched Opto® Memory B Discovery Rabbit workflow, which Berkeley Lights estimates can:

  • Screen approximately 15,000 to 60,000 single cells per workflow, depending on chip selection and number of chips used per workflow;

  • Identify hundreds to thousands of antigen-specific hits per workflow; and

  • Recover high-quality antibody sequences for the majority of discovered hits.
