    Antibodies are an indispensable tool in the study of biology and medicine. Making and Using Antibodies: A Practical Handbook presents techniques in a single, comprehensive source for the production and use of antibodies. It enables researchers to immediately access lab-tested, proven protocols.

    Written and edited by an elite team of scientists, who have developed and refined many of the methods, this book covers-

  • Commercially available adjuvants designed for the production of antisera in the research setting
  • Methods for the production, purification, and characterization of antibodies
  • Practical guidance to researchers needing to modify antibodies
  • Basic techniques including enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), Western blotting, immunohistochemistry, and flow cytometry
  • Methods for applying immunolabeling to the realm of electron microscopy (EM)
  • New antibody sources and new ways to use antobodies

    Making and Using Antibodies: A Practical Handbook also offers invaluable insight into future directions, challenges, and opportunities both in research and industrial applications.
