CHO (Chinese Hamster Ovary) cells are commonly utilized as an expression system for the production of human recombinant proteins at industrial scale. However, since very frequently these proteins are intended to be used as therapeuticals for humans, they must be subsequently purified to remove undesired contaminants that could elicit toxic or immunological reactions. Therefore, there is a current need to quantitate and trace these unwanted host cell proteins in protein preparations with excellent sensitivity and robustness, while maintaining high throughput capabilities.
AlphaLISA technology allows the detection of molecules of interest in a no-wash, highly sensitive, quantitative assay. In an AlphaLISA assay, a biotinylated anti-analyte antibody binds to the Streptavidin-coated Donor beads while another anti-analyte antibody is conjugated to AlphaLISA Acceptor beads. In the presence of the analyte, the beads come into close proximity. The excitation of the Donor beads causes the release of singlet oxygen molecules that triggers a cascade of energy transfer in the Acceptor beads, resulting in a sharp peak of light emission at 615 nm.
