BriClone is an additive for the cloning medium used in the post-fusion stages of hybridoma production and for improving the efficiency of hybridoma cell cloning.
The use of feeder cells to support the outgrowth of hybridomas has many disadvantages, like batch-to-batch variation of the feeder cells and competition between feeder cells and freshly-fused hybridomas for nutrients in the culture medium. BriClone has been specially developed by the NICB’s dedicated team to overcome these common problems in the post-fusion period.
BriClone is produced and distributed from state-of-the-art facility at the NICB.
The NICB (National Institute for Cellular Biotechnology) is a leading research institute located on the DCU campus in Dublin.
The NICB is a multidisciplinary centre of research in fundamental and applied cellular biotechnology, molecular cell Biology, ocular diseases and biological chemistry. It includes a multidisciplinary team of Cell and Molecular Biologists, Biotechnologists, Chemists and Computer scientists.
