Llamas/Alpacas

Llama

LAMPIRE has been producing high-quality custom antibodies since 1977, offering a variety of polyclonal antibody services and animal models to fit your research and production needs. 

Llamas are chosen for large volume polyclonal and/or recombinant monoclonal production. They have unique heavy chain only antibody structure (VHH antibodies or nanobodies) that bind to epitopes that are inaccessible to traditional antibodies, making them more likely to penetrate difficult to access tissues. Llama antibodies also have proven to have a longer shelf life and have shown higher tolerance to extreme conditions and have a higher pH. Finally, research has shown that recombinant nanobodies, or antigen binding single domain proteins, are easily engineered from llama antibody ...Read more

LAMPIRE has been producing high-quality custom antibodies since 1977, offering a variety of polyclonal antibody services and animal models to fit your research and production needs. 

Llamas are chosen for large volume polyclonal and/or recombinant monoclonal production. They have unique heavy chain only antibody structure (VHH antibodies or nanobodies) that bind to epitopes that are inaccessible to traditional antibodies, making them more likely to penetrate difficult to access tissues. Llama antibodies also have proven to have a longer shelf life and have shown higher tolerance to extreme conditions and have a higher pH. Finally, research has shown that recombinant nanobodies, or antigen binding single domain proteins, are easily engineered from llama antibody genes. LAMPIRE consistently provides high quality buffy coats (PBMCs) and/or RNA Isolations from our llama animal models.

Without cost or obligation, LAMPIRE will schedule a technical call with our scientific staff to discuss your research goals and specific starting material as well as your animal model. If a custom protocol is recommended, we provide you with timelines and a custom quote. To begin your discussion, please contact us today by email at projman@lampire.com or call 215-795-2838
