Antibodies for Forensic Applications / Drug Testing
Antibodies to drugs or their metabolites are the ideal tool for analysis of drugs of abuse in humans. Most drugs of abuse are small molecules that can be challenging targets for antibody generation. To elicit antibodies, the drugs must be conjugated to carrier proteins at high incorporation ratios. Screening for antibodies that are specific to the drug, and bind to the drug in the absence of carrier protein requires carefully formatted assays. Antibody Solutions has developed rabbit polyclonal and mouse monoclonal antibodies suitable for drug of abuse assays, including homogeneous EMIT assays.
