Project: Using VHH antibody fragments for diagnostic purposes

project duration
01-FEB-05 – 31-JAN-07
This project aims to develop antibody fragments suitable for immunohistochemical analyses. VHH fragments, the antigenbinding fragments of camelid antibodies, are highly soluble and very stable while they retain a high antigenbinding affinity and specifity. Their low molecular weight allows a better biodistribution and tissue penetration. Because of these biophysical properties they are ideally suited to be used as diagnostic tools.
