The chimeric monoclonal antibody anti-EBOV GP mAb (h13F6) is a monoclonal antibody that is highly purified and has a high binding affinity for the antigen against which it is raised. If used correctly and according to protocol, this antibody will provide excellent and reproducible results with guaranteed success for tested and confirmed applications.
Among the advantages of monoclonal antibodies are the fact that although the hybridoma takes a little longer to produce, once the line is ready, there is a virtually endless supply of these antibodies over time with little or no variation in antigen recognition sites. indifferent batches; Compared to polyclonal antibodies, monoclonal antibodies are highly specific for a given epitope and can be used in applications where specific targeting is required.
Storage and handling
Lyophilized antibodies can be transported at room temperature and stored for short periods at +4 degrees Celsius, for longer periods at -20 ° C. Antibodies in liquid form can be shipped and stored for a short period of time at +4 degrees Celsius, for long-term storage (up to one year) 25-50% glycerol or ethylene glycol should be added and then the container should be added stored at -20 ° C.
To maintain the quality and affinity of the antibodies, freeze-thaw cycles should be avoided. In the case of antibodies in liquid form or reconstituted lyophilized antibodies, small amounts of the core could be captured on the lid or walls of the container. Just before use, you can briefly centrifuge the vial to collect all the solution at the bottom.
