Store at 4°C in the dark. Under these conditions, the antibodies should have a shelf life of at least 12 months (provided they remain sterile). For longer storage periods, dilute the antibodies with sterile glycerol and store at -20°C. Do not freeze these antibodies unless you want to store them for longer periods of time.
Chickens were immunized with purified, non-denatured goat IgG (containing both heavy and light chains) emulsified in Freund’s adjuvant. After multiple injections, eggs were collected from hyperimmunized hens and the IgY fraction purified from the yolks. Anti-goat IgG’s were affinity-purified over a column conjugated with purified goat IgG (whole protein).
Phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) (pH 7.2), sodium azide (0.02%, w/v) (as an anti-microbial agent).
There is no detectable cross-reactivity with rabbit, human or mouse IgG
Antibodies were tested for specificity using double-immunodiffusion assays in agarose.
These antibodies are to be used as research laboratory reagents and are not for use as diagnostic or therapeutic reagents in humans.
