We are presently working on fish (tilapia, Oreochromis sp) metallothionein. We do request you to suggest an ELISA kit from your products that we can buy for our research purpose. Your product ab 36882 as mentioned in the information can be used for ELISA but please let us know how it works, specially what kind of elisa is to be performed and what kind of reader is needed. We are in touch with your local distributor (Allied scientific, Kolkata). We will look forward to your early reply and cooperation.

Thank you for your enquiry. Metallothionein antibody (ab36882) is an antibody that can be applied and is guaranteed for use in ELISA. We do not sell specific kits for use with this antibody. However, the antibody can be applied relatively easily using a degree of optimisation. We guarantee this antibody for application in ELISA using direct and indirect ELISA (see protocol below for guidelines). We guarantee antibodies for use as a combination in sandwich ELISA only when stated on the antibody datasheets. The antibody itself is not dependent on the detection system that you employ and should be determined by the end user. I hope this information helps, please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
