Is Laboratory Medicine Ready for Artificial Intelligence?
69th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting Press Program

Some say that the invention of the abacus more than 2,500 years ago was the first step on the long road to artificial intelligence (AI). The reason why this simple calculator made of beads and wires is often called the precursor to the modern computer is because the principle—performing repeated calculations faster than the human brain—is the same. Now scientists are harnessing the speed of modern computers and programming them with cognitive algorithms and sophisticated decision trees to help solve complex medical problems. This rapidly advancing science was the focus yesterday of the Chair’s Invited Session, “Is Artificial Intelligence in Genomics Ready for Prime Time?”

Guinea Pig Monoclonal Antibodies : A New Promising Tool for R&D, IVD and Therapeutics
69th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting Press Program

Monoclonal antibodies development has been limited for a long time to only two species : mice and rats. However, the immune systems of mice and rats are not the most suitable in terms of humoral response to certain antigens, such as human antigens like glucagon. Indeed, the protein sequence of glucagon is the same in mice, rats and human (fig. 1). Small not immunogenic antigens, such as antibiotics or toxins, generally failed to trigger an immune response in such species. This is why some companies have developed fusion cell lines to generate monoclonal antibodies in rabbit (Abcam-Epitomics) or in sheep (Bioventix). However, these two tools are not totally satisfactory whether in terms of cost, stability or productivity.
