Absolute Antibody Coronavirus Update

Helping our customers and employees during the COVID pandemic

Absolute Antibody is committed to the health and safety of our customers and employees during this trying time. Our offices are following government guidelines in order to maintain a safe environment, while supplying our customers with the antibodies they need for critical research.

Although we are carefully managing the number of employees at our locations at any given time and practicing extreme social distancing, we have been able to maintain our commitment to our customers, including many who are working on COVID-19. Our production lines are all running in order to deliver recombinant antibodies without delay. We continue to work feverishly to make additional recombinant versions of antibodies to coronavirus and are adding new versions to our catalog almost daily.

Production timelines and shipping times are not affected at this time – our website reflects appropriate lead times for our antibodies. Should an issue arise, rest assured our customer service team will contact you immediately if there is any impact on your order.

With our sister company, Kerafast, we are doing what we can to support COVID-19 research, diagnostics and therapeutic development. Examples include:

  • Our catalog includes a wide variety of recombinant coronavirus reagents, including anti-SARS-CoV-2 spike glycoprotein and nucleoprotein antibodies, anti-human immunoglobulin antibodies, ACE2 Fc fusion proteins, and synthetic nanobodies for SARS-CoV-2 receptor binding domain. All reagents are available in engineered formats useful for coronavirus research and diagnostics, including human antibodies in different isotypes and subtypes, as well as other species, fragments, and engineered Fc domains.
  • We are supporting several therapeutic antibody projects for COVID-19 using our antibody engineering and expression services. This includes the production of gram quantities of human antibodies sequenced from recovering patients.
  • We are licensing unique coronavirus antibodies from academic laboratories and making them easily available to the global scientific community via our online catalog.

Our employees miss the ability to interact with our customers and partners at conferences and trade shows. While these activities have all been cancelled or significantly postponed, our team is presenting and participating in various virtual conferences and webinars.

The Absolute Antibody team is available via customer service, sales and technical support contacts and will be happy to assist you in any way we can. We hope you, your family and your colleagues are all well and look forward to working together to support your research.
