In addition to diagnostic kits, we offer a variety of biochemical reagents for research use that have been used worldwide for more than a decade.
Our reagent solutions include prion antibodies (6H4, 34C9, 2E11 and 15B3), prion protein (rec bovPrP), and secondary antibodies (anti-swine, -bovine, and -chicken) as well as CSFV, BVDV, and FMDV antibodies that meet strict ISO 9001:2000 quality control standards.
Antibodies—Our four anti-prion monoclonal antibodies (6H4, 34C9, 2E11 and 15B3) are used in research laboratories worldwide, referenced in numerous scientific publications, and can be used with a wide variety of mammalian species such as cattle, sheep, rabbit, and primate. We also offer secondary antibodies (anti-swine, -bovine, and -chicken) as well as CSFV, BVDV (mAb 3 & 10), and FMDV (mAb 99, D5, A & Asia 1) antibodies.
Immunogenic adjuvant—Stimune is a highly effective and safe water-in-oil adjuvant that can be used to immunize a wide range of animals, including birds, mice, guinea pigs, rabbits, pigs, and goats. Stimune can be applied both subcutaneously and intramuscularly, eliciting strong immune reactions and antibody yields that can be up to 10x higher than those obtained with other adjuvants. Additionally, stringent quality controls help ensure product consistency, purity, and biological activity.
Prion protein—Recombinant bovine prion protein (rec bovPRP) is a highly purified prion protein. The nucleotide sequence corresponding to the mature primary structure of bovine PrP (amino acids 25–242) was amplified by PCR from genomic DNA, and the protein is expressed in an E. coli K12 strain. The molecular weight is 23,686, and the extinction coefficient in aqueous solution at 280 nm is 62,400 M–1 cm–1.
