We’re always excited to see peer-reviewed publications citing Absolute Antibody products and services. Below is a select list of articles that illustrate the benefits of our recombinant antibody technology for various research applications.

If you’ve published a paper citing Absolute Antibody, we’d love to hear about it! Please contact us and let us know.

Fc Silent™ Technology

Our Fc Silent antibodies™ have a genetically engineered Fc domain with key point mutations that abrogate binding of Fc receptors and abolish ADCC effector function. Below are several articles illustrating the use of Fc Silent™ technology to exploit antibody binding activity while excluding Fc-dependent effector function.
