Details

Chickens were immunized with purified ß-Galactosidase (lacZ) protein emulsified in Freund’s adjuvants. After multiple injections, eggs were collected from the hens, IgY fractions were prepared from the yolks, and then affinity-purified antibodies were prepared using ß-Galactosidase conjugated to an agarose matrix. The final product is a mixture of both affinity-purified antibodies (25 µg/mL) and purified IgY (10 mg/mL), and is filter-sterilized.

Quality Control

This antibody preparation was analyzed by immunohistochemistry (at a dilution of 1:5000) using tissues infected with a virus bearing the LacZ gene. Secondary antibodies were fluorescein-labeled affinity-purified goat anti-chicken IgY (1:2000 dilution, Aves Labs Cat.# F-1005).

Storage

Store at -20°C in the dark. Under these conditions, the antibodies should have a shelf life of at least 12 months (provided they remain sterile). Do not freeze these antibodies at -80°C unless you want to store them for longer periods of time. Note, however, that each time an antibody preparation is frozen, about half its binding activity is lost.
