Rabbit Monoclonal Antibodies

ABclonal provides a customized rabbit recombinant monoclonal antibody service using our proprietary B cell cloning technology. This unique technology employs innovative cell sorting, enriching, bioinformatics and advanced cloning. It does not take the traditional approach of using the hybridoma method, hence avoiding the stability issue associated with hybridomas.

Our rabbit monoclonal technology has a high success rate towards difficult targets such as post-translational modification site, small molecule, and proteins with point mutation.

Our rabbit monoclonal service provides:
  • One-stop service – from consultation, antigen design and synthesis to antibody purification and validation.
  • Flexible optimization at each stage.
  • Both monoclonal antibodies and polyclonal antibodies if requested.
  • Claims no Intellectual Property for the resulting antibody product.
Advantages of Rabbit mAb:
  • High affinity
  • Superior specificity
  • Broad epitope recognition
  • Good recognition of small molecules and post translational modification sites
  • Great stability
  • Multiple applications, including IF, IHC, ChIP, ELISA, Flow, IP and WB
  • High antibody diversity
  • Perfect choice for testing rodent proteins and tissues
  • One major IgG isotype
Phase I: Immunization

Phase II: Cell Sorting, Screening, Sequencing

Phase III: Cloning, Expression, and Characterization

To work with us, please provide:
  1. The antigen information: ABclonal will produce the immunogens for you, such as peptides, recombinant proteins, etc.
  2. Prepared immunogens: such as peptides, proteins, small molecules, or other samples.
  3. Spleen and blood of an immunized rabbit: ABclonal will initiate the custom monoclonal antibody development.

We also provide comprehensive services for antibody cloning, engineering, expression, and purification in addition to custom antibody development.
