New MedixMAB™ Strep A rabbit monoclonal antibody
If you are using a polyclonal antibody against Group A Streptococcus bacteria, now you can switch to the excellent rabbit monoclonal antibody from Medix Biochemica. This rabbit monoclonal antibody recognizes the Lancefield A carbohydrate which is the most common antigen in GAS bacteria and the most popular target of rapid tests.
The advantage of the MedixMAB Strep A antibody is the high specificity as it does not cross-react with other Streptococcus groups. Strep A bacteria (Streptococcus pyogenes) is the most common cause of pharyngitis. The new MedixMAB Strep A antibody pairs in lateral flow and ELISA with itself.
Anti-Streptococcus group A 2650, ref. 700031
Samples of the rabbit Strep A antibody are now available upon request.
