I would also be appreciated, if I got some knowledge from monoclonal antobodies&
affinity. i have done experiments with monoclonal abs with FCS (Fluorescence
Correlation Spectroscopy) based on Brownian thermal motion, in much lower
concentration than nanomolar, near picomolar range, because of the sensitivity of
this single molecule technique and thus, if nanomolar range is used, huge
aggregations is to be seen.
best regards,
