Vector offers unconjugated and biotinylated anti-lectin antibodies for localizing lectin receptors in tissues and on cells, or following lectin transport in neuronal tracing. In some applications, using biotinylated anti-lectins in conjunction with unlabeled lectins may provide greater sensitivity than using biotinylated lectins alone.
Vector produces its antibodies to lectins by immunizing goats with pure lectins. Following conventional purification steps, we isolate the specific anti-lectin antibody by affinity chromatography on lectin-agarose columns. They are supplied lyophilized in buffered saline.
