Aspergillus monoclonal antibody

Aspergillus is a genus of aerobic fungi found widespread in the environment including air, water and food. They are harmless to those with healthy immune systems but can infect patients undergoing transplantation or chemotherapy, and lead to disseminated disease (aspergillosis). If not controlled, fungal cells can infect major organs such as the lungs, heart and kidneys. Aspergillus fumigatus is the most frequently identified pathogen.

ViroStat has released a new rabbit monoclonal antibody to Aspergillus species. This new antibody recognises numerous Aspergillus species and is reactive with all strains of Aspergillus fumigatus tested. It functions well in IFA, IHC, and self-pairs in ELISA. Potential applications include rapid antigen detection systems such as ELISA and lateral-flow immunoassay.

This new antibody from ViroStat joins a collection of existing rabbit monoclonal antibodies to Candida albicans, Streptococcus  A and B,  S. pneumoniae and Legionella.
