With advanced knowledge and technology in hapten-related small molecules, Creative Biolabs provides design and synthesis services for heavy metal haptens.

New York, USA – June 21, 2022 – Heavy metals, such as lead, cadmium, and mercury, are toxic contaminants that have become a global concern for human and animal health. Toxic contaminants accumulate in the body through the environment and food supply, potentially causing serious harmful events, such as carcinogenesis, mutagenesis, and teratogenesis.

Fueled by increasing demand for heavy metal monitor and identification, the immunological detection technology of heavy metals has made continuous progress and has opened a broad application prospect.

Amongst all immunoassay development procedures, the design and synthesis of heavy metal haptens are critical. Creative Biolabs offers heavy metal hapten design and synthesis services accordingly, including but not limited to:

Design and Synthesis of Haptens for Lead

As one of the most ubiquitous heavy metals, lead results in far-flung pollution worldwide. Antibodies against lead-chelate complexes can rapidly detect the presence of lead ions. Due to small molecular weight and poor immunogenicity, lead ions must be designed and synthesized in different formats, or as lead haptens, for lead ion detection. Creative Biolabs provides design and synthesis services for lead haptens by selecting the highly effective bifunctional chelating agents to bridge lead ions and carrier proteins.

Design and Synthesis of Haptens for Cadmium

High-affinity antibodies are required to develop immunoassays against cadmium, a toxic environmental element and carcinogen that threatens human health. Meanwhile, the design and synthesis of suitable and high-quality cadmium haptens are the prerequisites for the detection of cadmium with low detection limits and a full working range. Along with years of experience in hapten development, Creative Biolabs can handle the design and synthesis of haptens for cadmium for global customers.

Design and Synthesis of Haptens for Mercury

Anti-mercury monoclonal antibody is the key diagnostic tool in highly specific and sensitive immunoassays. Mercury-based hapten synthesis strategy provides a powerful yet easy-to-use analytical tool for detecting mercury contamination. Creative Biolabs offers design and synthesis services aimed at preparing stable mercury haptens to meet diverse needs.

Design and Synthesis of Haptens for Chromium

Chromium is not biodegradable and has different levels of toxicity in various formats, making it a potential threat to human health; thus, immunoassays that testify to its presence are crucially important. Due to its low molecular weight, chromium cannot elicit an immune response. As a result, bifunctional chelators can be used for conjugating carriers and chromium to synthesize chromium-chelate protein complexes as complete immunogens that can effectively elicit chromium-specific antibodies.

Design and Synthesis of Haptens for Copper

Copper ions are essential in the metabolism of living organisms but toxic at high concentrations. Traditional copper detection methods are based on costly instruments and highly professional analysts, which is expensive, highly specific, and time-consuming. The alternative approach of copper ion measurement has been a focus recently. Creative Biolabs provides services, including designing and synthesizing copper ion haptens, obtaining specific antibodies, and utilizing antigen-antibody reactions to perform immunoassays.
