I have have a few question below:
He wanted to try the below antibodies
However I also have few enquiries;
1) All of these antibodies are compatible to full length antigen, but in my case I'm using epitopes. Does that means I can expect the same functionality of these antibodies towards my epitopes?
2) Do abcam provides antibody synthesis service because I have 2 additional epitopes that I am having trouble in finding primary antibody.

Thank you for your interest in Abcam.
1) Indeed, I can confirm that all relevant antibodies (CFP10: ab45074, ab64753, ab64754; ESAT6: ab26246, ab45073; Ag85B: ab43019) have been generated against the full-length proteins. The exact binding sequences of these have unfortunately not been determined, except for ab26246 (residues EQQWNFAGIEAAA at positions 3-15). So if you are working with protein fragments (or epitopes), we cannot guarantee that these antibodies will work for you, as the binding sites might not be present and therefore the antibody might not bind. I could ask the lab whether the epitopes have been mapped and whether the antibodies would bind your fragments, if you could provide some details to your peptides.
2) We continually add antibodies and other protein detection products to our catalogue but we do not offer custom-made antibodies. However, we are happy to pass on the contact details of the following companies that do offer this service:
