Ebola Virus (EBOV)
2-3 weeks +4°C, -20°C long term
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.
Monoclonals of this antigen are available in different clones. Each murine monoclonal anibody has his own affinity specific for the clone. Mouse monoclonal antibodies are purified protein A or G and can be conjugated to FITC for flow cytometry or FACS and can be of different isotypes.
Mouse or mice from the Mus musculus species are used for production of mouse monoclonal antibodies or mabs and as research model for humans in your lab. Mouse are mature after 40 days for females and 55 days for males. The female mice are pregnant only 20 days and can give birth to 10 litters of 6-8 mice a year. Transgenic, knock-out, congenic and inbread strains are known for C57BL/6, A/J, BALB/c, SCID while the CD-1 is outbred as strain.

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.
