Question

Dear technical team,   Our customer would like to purchase HCV NS5B antibody which detects 1b or 2a type.   She assume that ab100895 is right for her test but, to make sure check this please.   Thank you. Best regards,

Answer

Thank you for contacting us. I am sorry for the delay in this response. ab100895 is a Mouse monoclonal antibody to Hepatitis C virus NS5B which has been used previously for ELISA and Western blotting. Unfortunately I have been unable to confirm if this antibody would recognise both 1b or 2a type. We do however have a further two antibodies against the same target: ab35586 and ab65410 which are both rabbit polyclonals which may also be suitable. These two antibodies have been tested for activity against  directly for their activity against genotypes 1a and 1b. Whilst other genotypes have not been tested being a polyclonal, it is expected to recognise other genotypes as well. I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
