Suitable antigens for your custom antibodies

For the antibody production nearly any kind of antigen can be used. Usually proteins, peptides, SDS-Gel pieces, DNA, cells or small molecules are used for the production of polyclonal or monoclonal antibodies.
If you have any questions regarding your antigens you can just send us an email: info@davids-bio.com.

Antigen Selection - What Antigen is the best for my Application

We produce your antibodies with any kind of antigen. We start the immunizations as soon as your antigen arrives.
When you have purified protein available the native protein can be used as antigen. For proteins that are difficult to purify or when the purified protein shows multiple bands in a SDS-gel you can use our SDS-Gel Extraction service. Here you cut your specific protein band from the gel and we extract your protein from the SDS-gel pieces for the immunization.
For proteins you only know the sequence from you can use our Peptide Antibody Service. Here we are looking for peptides that represent your protein. Our prediction program and our scientists predict the antigenicity, solubility and epitopes of the peptides. This service includes peptide prediction prior to order, synthesis and conjugation.
In addition we offer the immunization with antigens like DNA, Cells, Virus Particles, Toxins or Small Molecules. Please have a closer look at the handling with these antigens, as each antigen needs its individual preparation.


Please have a look at the table to see what kind of antigens are suitable for the immunizations of rabbits, chicken, mice, rats and guinea pigs. In addition some antigens need a preparation to optimize the antigenicity.

DNAWe prepare your DNA for the immunizationsSend us your DNA and we prepare it for direct immunization
Small MoleculesWe prepare your small molecules for the immunizationPlease contact us when you want to send small molecules

Buffer Requirements

You can choose any non-toxic buffer. Please have a look at the table of substance concentrations to have a guideline which buffers are fine for the immunizations. The maximum concentrations in the table are for antigens in a concentration of 1 mg/ml.

The buffer can contain the following ingredients. Examples for buffer contents.
Buffer Conditions Maximum Concentration
Urea2 M
NaCl200 mM
Imidazole200 mM
Dithiothreitol (DTT)2 mM
Citrate or Acetate100 mM
Triton X-1000.2%
TRIS100 mM

Additional Information

We perform ELISA titer determinations as quality control for our antibody services. With proteins extracted from SDS-gel or cells as antigen the ELISA results may differ to the real titer. Not every cell binds to ELISA plates without optimizing for the specific cell line. The same is for denaturated proteins covered with SDS. Please ask us if you have any additional questions.
