Polyclonal antibodies are widely used in biochemical and other biosciences applications to determine the cellular localisation and functions of proteins.

 

The immune response to an antigen generally involves the activation of multiple B-cells all of which target a specific epitope on that antigen. As a result a large number of antibodies are produced with different specificities and epitope affinities and these are known as polyclonal antibodies.

 

For production purposes these antibodies are generally purified from the serum of immunised animals where the antigen of interest stimulates the B-lymphocytes to produce a diverse range of immunoglobulin's specific to that antigen.

 

At Gemini Biosciences we produce high titre, high affinity polyclonal antibodies. These polyclonal antibodies can be used for research purposes in many areas of biology, such as immunoprecipitation, histochemistry, enzyme linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA), diagnosis of disease, immunoturbidimetric methods, western blots and Biochip technology. Polyclonal antibodies are ideally suited for use in sandwich assays as second stage antigen detectors.
