Anti-Idiotype Programs

background ag binding site


The idiotype is one or more antigenic determinants specific to the variable region of a particular antibody.

Antibody Solutions offers both monoclonal antibodies and affinity-purified polyclonal antibody services to specifically bind the idiotype of the target antibody. We have developed anti-idiotype antibodies that recognize the antigen-free or the antigen-bound target antibody.

Polyclonal anti-idiotype antibodies are typically used as positive controls controls in immunogenicity and anti-drug antibody (ADA) assays. Sometimes polyclonal antibodies may also have utility as a PK assay detecting reagent or PD assay control. Typical species include rabbit, goat and monkey.

Monoclonal anti-idiotype antibodies are used routinely as capture and detecting reagents in PK and PD assays. Typically, mouse monoclonals are generated. Click here for more details about this service.
