Monoclonal antibodies for peptide and steroid hormones
Due to their high specificity and sensitivity these antibodies may be applicable for research, diagnosis and therapeutics. A particular use may be quality control of industrial manufacturing of food products.
§ 119, 169 Monoclonal antibodies to Testosterone
Description: Rat monoclonal antibodies raised against testosterone 3-(0- carboxymethyl)oxime-BSA. Available clones: 5F2, 5A4.
