Polyclonal antibody is a group of immunoglobulin secreted by plasma cells in the organism, which occurred during the immune reaction when the body is stimulated by heterologous antigens (macromolecular antigen, hapten conjugates).
Polyclonal antibodies are widely used in research and diagnosis due to various advantages such as the introduction of several antigenic epitopes which cause a deposition reaction, short manufacturing time and low cost.

The most important property of polyclonal antibodies is their high titre. Polyclonal antibodies are obtained from animal antisera immunized with affinity purification, and this manufacturing process results in the production of the desired antibody with a high titer and high affinity for the target antigen.

We have compiled a wide variety of high-quality polyclonal antibodies specific to different types and uses, all of which are guaranteed to be of great use to your research.
Polyclonal antibodies are widely used in various biochemical experiments such as ELISA, WB, IF, IHC, ICC, ChIP, flow cytometry and others. The company offers a wide range of high-quality polyclonal anti-human antibodies.
A polyclonal antibody holds the capability to recognize and bind different epitopes on the same antigen while a monoclonal antibody recognizes and binds a single epitope on the antigen.
The main difference between these antibody classes lies in their specificity; monoclonal antibodies are highly specific, while polyclonal antibodies are more likely to cross-react and thus, decrease specificity.
