Abcore is a Southern California antibody production company focused on making high quality antibodies. Abcore produces quality custom sheep polyclonal antibodies due to the great care we give our animals. Our sheep are bred in the same area as our farm in Southern California. They are designated as disease-free by the local USDA office. The expert veterinary care and daily health assessment ensures that our clients are receiving the best chance for target antibody development. Also, our animal facility is USDA inspected and approved (93-R-0574) and NIH/OLAW certified (# A4713-01).
Abcore offers standard 98 day sheep antibody production packages which consist of 5 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 female yearlings for each project, and prices start at $1,320.
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 sheep antibody production project.
