Abstract:

To measure circulating antigens, sandwich ELISA assays require two complementary affinity reagents. Mouse monoclonal antibodies (mAb) and polyclonal antibodies (pAb) are commonly used, but because their production is lengthy and costly, recombinant antibodies are emerging as an attractive alternative.
