Product News: New Portfolio of Rabbit Monoclonal Antibodies for Immunohistochemistry

05 Feb 2010

AMSBIO has announced a new portfolio of rabbit monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies for Immunohistochemistry (IHC) applications. A rabbit custom antibody service is also available.

Antibodies produced by rabbits are reported to often provide superior antigen recognition, greater specificity, and better consistency than those offered by mice. Rabbit antibodies often can recognise certain antigens and epitopes that are not immunogenic in mice or rats. These antibodies can sometimes also offer higher working titres and may therefore help to lower laboratory costs. By using Rabbit monoclonal antibodies (RMAbs) researchers can benefit from these unique qualities especially in the area of Immunohistochemistry. Use of RMAbs technology provides critical information to researchers regarding the distribution and localisation of biomarkers, and differentially expressed proteins in different parts of a biological tissue.
