    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

Antibody Concentrations: 1.0 mg/ml

Volume: Regular vials contain 200 µl of this antibody preparation.

Buffer: Phosphate-buffered (10 mM) isotonic (0.9%, w/v) saline (PBS, pH 7.2) with sodium azide (0.02%, w/v) added as a preservative.

Quality Control: Antibodies were analyzed by immunohistochemistry (at a dilution of 1:1000) using fluorescein-labeled goat anti-chicken IgY (1:500 dilution, Aves Labs Cat.# F-1005) as the secondary reagent.

Recommended Dilutions: 1:2000-1:5000 for immunohistochemistry and immunocytochemistry using 2% paraformaldehyde-fixed tissues or cells. 1:5000-1:10000 for western blotting. Note that these dilutions are meant to serve only as starting points — optimal dilutions may vary.

Description: Chickens were immunized with purified neurofilament protein (200 kDa) isolated from bovine brains. After repeated injections into the hens, immune eggs were collected, and the IgY fractions were purified from the yolks. These IgY fractions are diluted 1:10 with 1% bovine serum albumin (to reduce absorption) in phosphate-buffered isotonic saline solution (PBS) with 0.02% sodium azide (as a preservative).
