Monoclonal IgE anti-ovalbumin antibody
A laboratory from the Harvard School of Public Health has developed a monoclonal Ig E mouse anti-ovalbumin. This antibody is useful as a positive control in ELISA assays used to measure the level of IgE anti-ovalbumin antibodies in mouse models of asthma. An IgG1 mouse anti-ovalbumin hybridoma is also available.

Currently there is no commercial IgE anti-ova available that could be useful as a positive control in ELISA assays which measure the level of IgE anti-ovalbumin antibodies in mouse models of asthma. Most investigators use a pool of positive serum as the positive control and express their results as an index. This reagent could be of interest to many asthma and immunology investigators.
