The success rate to identify a multi-specific lead molecule with favorable drug-like properties increases with the number of variants tested. We report here the establishment of a novel, automated platform process for the fast generation of large panels of multi-specific variants (up to 10,000). Our high-throughput process integrates emerging cloning technologies with state-of-the-art automation and workflow supporting bioinformatics based on Genedata Biologics Database.
