Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol is a psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. It is the primary active ingredient responsible for the plant's euphoric effects and is known for its ability to alter mood, perception, and cognition. Delta-9-THC works by binding cannabinoid receptors in the brain and nervous system, mimicking the effects of naturally occurring neurotransmitters. It has been shown to have both therapeutic and recreational uses, with research suggesting its potential in treating conditions such as chronic pain, nausea, and anxiety. TX™ Mouse Anti-Delta-9-THC is a high-affinity monoclonal antibody that is engineered to detect THC in a variety of matrices, including biological fluids and plant extracts. This product is suitable for use in immunoassays such as Western blot and ELISA.

PtX™ | Plant-Based Expression

The biotechnology behind the development and manufacture of this product, transient plant-based expression, effectively turns Nicotiana benthamiana plants into single-use, biodegradable bioreactors. Infiltrating this plant species with Agrobacterium tumefaciens cells, transformed with our proprietary plant expression vectors, allows rapid production of a wide variety of recombinant proteins. Plants are harvested and proteins extracted by various stages of filtration, clarification, purification, and polishing – resulting in a highly functional final product.
