    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)

Can I send gel slices?

Yes, but it is important not to fix the gels with ethanol-acetic acid. We recommend using Pierce’s Gel Code Zinc gel staining kit . Alternatively, you can stain the gels with an AQUEOUS solution of Coomassie dye. Also, be sure to keep the volume of the gel to a minimum. For each hen, the volume of the gel should be about 1 ml in about 1 ml of buffer (for a total volume of 2 mls). Divide the 2 mls into four 500 microliter aliquots.
