Don,

There are many commercial labs that custom produce Mabs and Pabs. One
such lab is ProSci Incorporated, but there are many others.

You might also contact Immunology Consultants Laboratories in Sherwood
(Oregon). They may be able to help you or direct you to a source.

You might also contact the Vet School there on the OSU campus. When I
was at OSU, several researchers in the Vet School were developing Mab
production systems. Our lab worked with a colleague there and at
Oregon Health Sciences University to develop our own production system
(for Abs to plant viruses). You might even ask Robert Martin, your
'next-door' colleague, if he knows of any labs that do custom Ab
production. 

As for my experience, I'll soon be producing my own Mabs, although I
would much prefer paying someone else to do so.

Hope that you Ducks and Beavers are seeing some sunshine finally.
