Host: Mouse Monoclonal
Chicken IgY antibodies are specifically designed for the detection of multiple primary antibodies (polyclonal or monoclonal) of different host species in experiments where cells are simultaneously labeled without unwanted cross reaction. IgY antibodies can be found in high concentrations in chicken egg yolks, which is an attractive quality as no blood serum is needed. There are no other antibodies located in chicken egg yolks, so there is no risk of contamination from the mammalian antibody isotopes. IgY is very similar in structure to IgG, and can be used instead of the mammalian antibody in certain applications.
