    Why Use Chicken IgY?

  • Here are top 5 reasons:

    1. Higher titres against highly conserved mammalian gene products

    2. Double immunostaining is easier to perform

    3. Animal-friendly -- we purify the antibodies from eggs, not serum

    4. Large quantities of antibody - faster and cheaper

    5. Nearly unlimited quantities (again, because the antibodies come from eggs)

Product Info

Beta-Galactosidase (lacZ) Antibody.  Chickens were immunized with purified b-galactosidase protein (lac Z from E. coli).  After repeated injections, immune eggs were collected from the hens, and the IgY fractions were purified from the yolks.  These IgY fractions were then affinity-purified using an agarose matrix to which the whole protein was attached.  The final preparation of this product involved mixing affinity purified anti-beta-galactosidase antibody (final concentration of 25 ug/ml) with IgY fractions of anti-beta-galactosidase antibody (final concentration of 10 mg/ml) in PBS with 50% glycerol.  This preparation was then filter-sterilized.
