Bioss offers monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies. Monoclonal primary antibodies will recognize only one epitope on an antigen, which makes them less likely to cross react with other proteins, and usually shows less background in staining. Polyclonal primary antibodies recognize multiple epitopes on an antigen, which makes them more tolerant of minor changes in the antigen, and recognize proteins of high homology to the immunogen protein. All primary antibodies are freshly conjugated in a wide range of flurochromes and labels to be used in a variety of applications.SECONDARY ANTIBODIES
Bioss offers polyclonal secondary antibodies that are whole IgG molecule specific. These types of secondary antibodies are labeled with various conjugates for all different application types. An important advantage in using a secondary antibody with an unconjugated primary antibody is an amplification of the signal due to the increased amount of labeled molecules that could be bound per target molecule.ISOTYPE CONTROLS
Bioss offers isotype controls that are whole IgG molecule specific. An isotype control is used to confirm that the binding of a primary antibody is specific. PEPTIDES
Upon request, Bioss offers peptides that are designed for our monoclonal and polyclonal primary antibodies. Peptides specifically bind the antibody against the antigen they were designed and block off further antibody binding.
