Hybridomas are cells that are formed when a B cell (a type of immune cell) from an animal is fused with a myeloma cell (a type of cancer cell). Hybridomas are important because they can produce large quantities of pure monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), which are usually the same antibody produced by the B cell. Monoclonal antibodies are useful for many applications, including diagnostics, drug development, and research. By using hybridomas, scientists can more easily and efficiently produce these mAbs.
