Over the years, antibodies have clearly become indispensable tools for biological research applications. The unique specificity of antibodies for a wide variety of types of molecules has generated numerous antibody-based methods, from the tried and true western-blot to fully automated multiplex single molecule immunoassay systems. Successful immunoassays are dependent on the researcher’s ability to identify, select or produce the best antibody in an application specific manner.

The key and lock image often used to describe the selectivity of an antibody to its antigen can also be applied to the selection of an antibody to achieve a project’s goal: each project is unique and calls for particular features of the antibody.

This white paper is a guide offering suggestions to research and clinical laboratories on how to choose an antibody. Catalogue or custom, monoclonal or polyclonal, pre-coupled or unmodified, how to select the best host, against which antigen type, we’ll show you how to decide.
