Secondary antibodies are key components of antibody detection systems. The selection of an optimum secondary antibody can improve positive signals in addition to reducing false positive or negative staining. Recombinant monoclonal isotype-specific secondary antibodies detect individual isotypes, without species or isotype cross-reactivity, enabling multiple unlabeled mouse monoclonal antibodies of differing isotypes to be used simultaneously. This obviates the need to source secondary antibodies from other species. The isotype-specific antibodies offer an alternative to cross-adsorbed secondary antibodies when absolute specificity is required, for instance, during multiplexing or to prevent nonspecific background staining.
Bio-Rad’s recombinant monoclonal antibodies are generated using the Human Combinatorial Antibody Library (HuCAL®) and CysDisplay®, a proprietary method of phage display with guided selection methods to obtain highly targeted reagents. The recombinant production method also ensures consistent and secure supply.
