Affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody reactive to EBOV VP40. The antibody detects VP40 in viruslike particles (VLP) and recombinant VP40 (rVP40) in Western Blot and ELISA.
Peptide sequence specific to Ebola Virus (EBOV) VP40 matrix protein
2-3 weeks +4°C, -20°C long term. Avoid multiple freeze thaws.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by virus detection they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
Polyclonals and antibodies
Polyclonals can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry on frozen slices or parrafin fixed tissues. The advantage is that there are more epitopes available in a polyclonal antiserum to detect the proteins than in monoclonal sera.Rabbits are used for polyclonal antibody production by virus detection. Rabbit antibodies are very stable and can be stored for several days at room temperature. virus detection adds sodium azide and glycerol to enhance the stability of the rabbit polyclonal antibodies. Anti-human, anti mouse antibodies to highly immunogenic selected peptide sequences are" monoclonal like" since the epitope to which they are directed is less than 35 amino acids long.

Marburg or Ebola viruses ( EBOV ) need to be handled in BSL4 Biological safety level 4. However the monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies, ELISAs and recombinant proteins do not need any specific safety measure because no active virus is involved. The Zaire Ebola strain is called ZEBOV. The Sudan virus is called SEBOV.
