    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)

What buffers should I use?

We prefer PBS (phosphate-buffered saline) or TBS (tris-buffered saline). It is important that the antigen preparations not contain anything that will harm or irritate the hens, as this can interfere with egg production. High concentrations of the following chemicals are to be avoided:

Urea (0.5 molar or higher)

SDS (0.1% or higher)

Imadazole (50 millimolar or higher)

EDTA or EGTA (10 millimolar or higher)

Sodium azide (any) TOP
