Title: Monoclonal Antibodies
Description: Several shots of a scientist in a laboratory setting, wearing a white coat and performing a test. Only his hands are visible. The scientist is sorting B-cells taken from the bone marrow of a patient with Lupus disease. The Lupus antibody-producing cell is isolated in a well, to be fused with a cancerous mouse myeloma B-cell, producing a hybridoma. Hybridomas produce identical monoclonal antibodies in large quantities and indefinitely.
