Monoclonal antibodies are those antibodies which target one specific site on an antigen, as
opposed to polyclonal antibodies which target several sites on an antigen.  Monoclonal antibodies 
can be used as highly accurate diagnostic tools. 
Further information can be found in almost any cell biology text.
Hopes this helps
