Polyclonal antibody generation
The standard inoculation procedure for a polyclonal antibody in a rabbit involves six immunisations at two-week intervals and three bleeds (with an additional pre-immune bleed). Read more about the generation process.
Monoclonal antibody generation
Our monoclonal process is identified by five phases. A typical monoclonal antibody project may yield up to 10 positive wells at the fusion screening stage and, after cloning, can deliver two or three stable monoclonal antibodies. Read more about the process and project steps.
Histone peptides and microarrays
