Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Q. How long will it take to make a monoclonal antibody?
    A. It usually takes at least 4-6 months.
  2. Q. Will the monoclonal or polyclonal antibody work in all test situations?
    A. Probably not, and this can be especially true for antibodies made against peptides. Sometimes we get lucky and get an antibody that works in most assay situations. But in many instances an antibody (or clone) works in a limited assay set, so it is important to screen with the assays for which the antibody is needed.
