Biotechnology holds substantial promise and impact across various economic sectors including the pharmaceutical, agricultural, and environmental industries. A cornerstone of biotechnology is the production of monoclonal antibodies. Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are laboratory-engineered molecules designed to act as substitute antibodies that can restore, enhance, or mimic the immune system’s ability to target foreign cells and molecules. They have emerged as a crucial tool in biotechnology, medicine, and research owing to their specificity and versatility.
As Vermont’s pioneering biotech company, Green Mountain Antibodies has over 25 years of experience making mAbs and has become a trusted partner for large pharmaceutical corporations, innovative biotech startups, and non-profit research organizations. They specialize in producing mAbs for both therapeutic and diagnostic applications encompassing areas like cancer, autoimmunity, and infectious diseases. The development and use of monoclonal antibodies signify a remarkable advancement in the capacity to treat, diagnose, and study diseases, showcasing the power of harnessing the immune system towards better healthcare outcomes.
Situated in the historic Chace Mill in Burlington, VT, their state-of-the-art laboratory, offices, and learning spaces are the hub of innovation where their team of over 25 dedicated employees work in value-driven zones to deliver unparalleled service to our clients. Being early adopters of Lean manufacturing principles, GMA fostered a fruitful partnership with VMEC beginning in 2005, setting a benchmark in manufacturing excellence.
