Chickens make better antibodies!

Since chicken IgY molecules are quite different from mammalian IgG’s, our secondary antibodies don’t cross react with primary antibodies made in rabbits, mice, or any other mammalian host tested. This makes it simple to perform double immunostaining. Made in goats, our secondary antibodies (fluorescein, HRP, biotin and agarose conjugates) can be used in western blots, immunohistochemistry & immunocytochemistry and immunoprecipitation applications Why Use Chicken IgY? Here are 5 top reasons:

  1. Higher titres against highly conserved mammalian gene products
  2. Double immunostaining is easier to perform
  3. Animal‐friendly ‐‐ we purify the antibodies from eggs, not serum
  4. Large quantities of antibody ‐ faster and cheaper
  5. Nearly unlimited quantities (again, because the antibodies come from eggs)
