Immunization - ImmunEasy™ Mouse Adjuvant

01.09.2001


For induction of high antibody titers in mice


Features and benefits

  • Easy mixing and delivery in aqueous suspension
  • Rapid production of high antibody titers
  • Boosting performed after only 2 weeks
  • Less antigen required than with conventional methods
  • Non-toxic adjuvant with no adverse side effects


Principle

ImmunEasy™ Mouse Adjuvant is a new type of adjuvant specifically designed for inducing high antibody titers in mice. The adjuvant contains immunostimulatory CpG™ DNA (1–4) — short oligonucleotides that contain unmethlylated cytosine-guanine dinucleotides within a certain base context. The mammalian immune system has evolved to recognize these sequences, which are found naturally in bacterial DNA, as a sign of infection. Exposure to CpG DNA results in a very rapid and strong immune response, and, when applied with an antigen, CpG DNA produces high titers of antigen-specific antibodies. The antibody titer induced by ImmunEasy Mouse Adjuvant is generally equal to or higher than that induced by Freund’s complete adjuvant. In addition, high antibody titers are induced using up to 10-fold less antigen compared to some other adjuvants. Furthermore, boosting can be performed after 2 weeks instead of 4, saving both time and animal-housing costs.


Procedure

ImmunEasy Mouse Adjuvant is provided as a ready-to-use aqueous suspension. The procedure is easy — adjuvant and antibody are mixed, incubated for 5–10 min at room temperature, and then injected into the mouse. Tedious mixing procedures such as heating, sonification, lyophilization, and homogenization, which are required for Freund’s adjuvant and other water-in-oil emulsions, are completely avoided, as are problems associated with improperly prepared adjuvant-antigen mixes. Boosting is performed 2 weeks after the primary immunization

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Klima-Satellit: Mit robuster Lasertechnik Methan auf der Spur

Hitzewellen in der Arktis, längere Vegetationsperioden in Europa, schwere Überschwemmungen in Westafrika – mit Hilfe des deutsch-französischen Satelliten MERLIN wollen Wissenschaftler ab 2021 die Emissionen des Treibhausgases Methan auf der Erde erforschen. Möglich macht das ein neues robustes Lasersystem des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Lasertechnologie ILT in Aachen, das eine bisher unerreichte Messgenauigkeit erzielt.

Methan entsteht unter anderem bei Fäulnisprozessen. Es ist 25-mal wirksamer als das klimaschädliche Kohlendioxid, kommt in der Erdatmosphäre aber lange nicht...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
