Goats were immunized with purified chicken IgY (whole protein) emulsified in Freund’s adjuvant. After multiple injections, goats were bled and serum collected. Antibodies were isolated using affinity chromatography.
Volume: 1 mL
Concentration: 1 mg/mL
Form: Affinity Purified
Host Species: Goat
Species Reactivity: Chicken
Physical State: Liquid
Buffer: Phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) (pH 7.2), sodium azide (0.02%, w/v) (as an anti-microbial agent).
Specificity: Does not cross-react with mammalian IgGs
Antibodies were analyzed using immunoelectrophoresis (see below) and ELISA. In the latter test, dilutions of 1:10,000 produced a detectable signal, as measured using horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-labeled chicken anti-goat IgG (Aves Labs Cat.#IGH-1010, 1:5000 dilution).
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.
