I posted the definitive solution last week, or at least I thought
Question: How were the hybridomas separated from all the others that made
the wrong Ab in the first place?
Answer: They were cloned!!
Re-clone your line by limiting dilution. This is a good practice anyway to
keep your line expressing high levels of Ab. Consult a hybridoma manual for
cloning protocols. Also, I would pop some of your cells into mice to make
ascites--this will allow you to make buckets of Ab and probably get rid of the
fibroblasts as well.
