What are ScFvs?

Single chain Fvs (ScFvs) are recombinant antibody fragments, which commonly consist of a full variable (epitope-binding) region of an immunoglobulin heavy chain covalently linked to the corresponding variable region of an immunoglobulin light chain. These regions are usually expressed as a single continuous sequence, which may or may not be separated by a short linking amino acid sequence.

Key Advantages of ScFvs

ScFvs have multiple benefits over traditional monoclonal antibodies due to their greatly reduced size (they are essentially a minimal version of an IgG molecule) and ease of genetic manipulation:

  • Full activity, specificity and stability (equal to full lg molecules) despite the reduced size of the ScFvs
  • Higher assay sensitivities: the reduced size of the scFv fragment allows for more densely packed coating of the fragmentís binding regions thus giving higher potential assay sensitivities
  • Reduced interferences: due to the removal of the entire immunoglobulin Fc region there is reduced likelihood of interference (e.g. from secondary antibodies or from Human Anti-Mouse Antibody (HAMA) interference
  • High quality of products: ISO13485 accreditated
  • Primary manufacturer of this novel antibody product range
  • Custom ScFvs can be made against novel targets
