Monoclonal and Polyconal Antibodies for Research Tools

Monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies are antigen-specific targeting proteins useful as important research tools in the fields of immunology, cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, neurology, and medicine. It is possible to create monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies to nearly any biologically-relevant substance, which can then be identified and/or purified using common laboratory assays and techniques (ELISA, Western Blot, magnetic affinity columns, immunoprecipitation, etc.) and detection equipment (such as Flow Cytometers and ELISPOT readers).
