Frequently asked questions
Why rabbit monoclonal antibodies?
Rabbits routinely produce antibodies with 10-100 times higher affinity than mouse antibodies, making them ideal for sensitive diagnostics and assays. Recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibodies provide consistency across batches and the security of knowing the antibody sequence. We immunize 2 animals per project and choose the rabbit with the best immune response for monoclonal discovery.
What are the material requirements?
We require 2.5 mg of antigen for immunization, affinity purification, and ELISA. The affinity purification can be customized to target specific variants, sub-domains, or cross-reactive species which would require additional antigen.
Can I send you samples from my existing immunization?
In some cases, we may be able to work with an immunization in progress, or a completed immunization. We can even discover antibodies without sacrificing the animal. Contact us today to discuss the particulars of your projects!
