Abstract

Labeled antibodies are key reagents in many procedures, particularly immunoassays and the detection of antigens in tissue sections and on membrane blots. The ideal labeled antibody retains all the immunoreactivity of the antibody and all the signal-generating capacity of the label. In addition, these conjugates should be stable, and have defined and appropriate proportions of the two components.
