Product code: 34858
Inquiry: I am looking for a primary antibody to deplete erythrocytes through immunocapture (attaching the primary antibody to a magnetic particle, then capturing erythrocytes and removing them with a magnetic field). Ab34858 looks encouraging as it agglutinates, demonstrating it sees surface antigens. The 3 references refer to PfEMP1, which is a surface antigen expressed when the malarial parasite infects an RBC - can you confirm that Ab34858 binds to all human erythrocytes before I order and try it. Also if there is any information on immuno-capture, that would be very helpful

Thank you for contacting us and your interest in our products.
Unfortunately, I do not have any further information to share in relation to the epitope recognised by the anti-Red Blood Cells antibody (ab34858). We have notourselves performed any detailed studies to elucidate the specific bound antigens.
We have not tested this whole antiserum (ab34858) for the proposed experiment or against all blood types and therefore cannot guarantee the results.This does not mean that it would not work, simply that we have not tested it ourselves.
I am sorry I could not be of more help. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask.
