Abcore is a Southern California antibody production company focused on making high quality antibodies. We emphasize animal health, and our rabbits are bred and put into production on the same farm. This relieves the stress associated with transportation and adjustment to a new environment which happens in a traditional production environment. Abcore also has on site veterinarians which monitor rabbit health and comfort. Also, our animal facility is USDA inspected and approved (93-R-0574) and NIH/OLAW certified (# A4713-01).
Abcore offers standard 60 day rabbit antibody production packages which consist of 4 immunizations, and 3 production bleeds (please see example project timeline below). However, we can adjust our protocol if you have specific needs. We typically use 2 New Zealand White Rabbits for each project, and prices start at $725.
Abcore provides free antigen design to assist if a peptide immunogen is required. We assist in selecting the best possible peptide sequence for eliciting the desired antibody response. We use the latest in software with the proper algorithms to assess antigenicity, hydrophilicity, flexibility, secondary structure and aggregation potential. Please take advantage of this free assistance if you require a peptide for your custom rabbit antibody production project.
