Immune Receptor
Sequencing

immunoSEQ, Adaptive’s T-cell receptor (TCR) and B-cell receptor (BCR) sequencing assay, provides a quantitative end-to-end immunosequencing solution that helps pharma partners discover the breadth and depth of the adaptive immune repertoire.

Key Applications of These Immune Receptor Data

Clone Tracking

Track T or B cell receptors from diverse samples, pre- and post-treatment and over time.

Use in the Drug Discovery and Development Process

We work with our partners across the research and development value chain. The rich immune receptor data that we generate provides valuable insights to inform and accelerate preclinical and clinical drug development— potentially saving significant cost and time. 

CAR-T Development and Monitoring

In March 2022, the US. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued draft guidance for institutions developing CAR T cell therapies. This guidance includes specific recommendations to various phases and stages of CAR T cell development—including in preclinical testing, CMC/manufacturing and monitoring of these living medicines for up to 15 years following infusion in patients.

Patient’s Repertoire

  • Clonality analysis of a patient’s repertoire prior to treatment with either TCR and CAR-T therapy
  • Infer and confirm subject HLA prior to therapy

Monitoring

  • Monitor expansion and persistence of product in blood vs. site of disease
  • Determine biomarkers of response (e.g., magnitude and durability)
