  • 2. Lymphocytes are produced by the rat's immune system. The lymphocite produces the wanted antibody
  • 3. The lymphocites with the antigen are harvested 
  • 4. They are combined with tumour cells as they divide a lot faster than the Lymphocytes to produce a Hybrogen
  • 5. They divide quickly to produce lots and lots of the antibody

-Uses of Monoclonal Antibodies:
