  • General notes
    This product is not for use in the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS) or HIV. It is for research use only and not intended for diagnostic or therapeutic use of any kind. Abcam therefore strictly forbids the purchase of this product for diagnostic or therapeutic use of any kind. "Caprivax", the new MS drug currently undergoing trials, is obtained from the serum of goats immunised to produce certain antibodies. Abcam's goat serum is NOT from such goats and therefore does not contain the antibodies in question. In other words, this product is not "Caprivax". It is for this reason, we regret, that our product is of no use whatsoever in connection with the treatment of MS.

    Strain: Mixed breed and sex.

    Raised in: Goat

    Purity: Whole antiserum

ab138478 is sterilized, whereas ab7481 is not. That is the only difference between the two products and the reason that ab138478 is more expensive.
