Antibody Support Services

Support Services for Polyclonal and Monoclonal Antibodies

LAMPIRE has provided quality antibody support services since 1977. From antigen design and peptide synthesis to antibody purification and labeling, our expert staff is available to assist you with every phase of antibody development. The success of your antibody project is very important to us. As such, we encourage you to take advantage of our free Antigen Design and Protocol Review described below. To begin discussion about any of these services, please contact us today by email or at 215-795-2838.

Antigen Design and Protocol Review

Prior to beginning any monoclonal or polyclonal development project, you have the option of meeting with LAMPIRE's scientific staff for consultation on antigen design and immunization protocol. Using computer-aided technology, LAMPIRE scientists will analyze peptide sequences relevant to your target antigen and review with you the predicted immunogenicity. This service is provided free of charge and aids us in selecting the appropriate immunization protocol for your antigen. While we cannot guarantee every peptide sequence will generate an immune response in the host animal, this service has proven very successful in maximizing the success of each antibody development project.
