We will be happy to use your antigen, or we can be of assistance in designing and producing an antigen for you.
Typically a number of balb/c mice are immunised for the purpose of producing monoclonal antibodies. Our standard protocol is used where the polyclonal response is evaluated by ELISA at intervals such that the fusion can be performed earlier while maintining the likelihood of obtaining a large number of positive clones. If you have a preference of immunisation schedule or what mouse strain to use, we should be able to accommodate you.
The main reason for not using other hosts is the limited availability of the required fusion partners. If there is a need, that cannot be overcome by royalty free Antibody engineering techniques (e.g. chimerisation), then we can look into immunisations of hosts other than mice for the producing monoclonal antibodies.
Innovagen was founded in 1992. Over the years we have been involved in thousands of antibody projects. The experience gained from this work will be of value to you when you turn to us for your custom antibody project.
