Abcalis® believes that the future of secondary antibodies is recombinant, sequence defined and animal free. In therapeutics, recombinant antibodies have long been the gold standard for real-world application and we do not see any reason why this should be different for diagnostics and research.
Multiclonals™ combine the best of polyclonal antisera and hybridoma monoclonal antibodies, while eliminating their disadvantages, plus they add the unlimited availability and sequence defined quality of recombinant reagents.
Our Multiclonal™ antibodies are a mixture of different, individually characterized and carefully selected recombinant monoclonal immunoglobulins. Their respective epitope binding sites do not compete with each other, providing increased signal strength in your assays.
As is the standard with all Abcalis® products, they are all completely sequence defined, implying their unlimited long-term availability and always identical test results. Their composition from a limited number of individually characterised antibodies minimizes cross-reactivity with other targets, since they do not contain non-target directed IgG like all animal-derived polyclonal sera do. This allows for a much lower unspecific binding reactivity in many assays compared to animal based products.
