...this is very good!:) the feeling becomes stronger:)
...of course it could be renaturated on my PVDF:)).. it makes sense
and very logic, and this means i have more work to do.... but if ill
get a native antibody with that sort of affinity that will be

... to be done next, after linear epitope mapping is completed
... then i wont have any feeling at all just plain persuadive data:)
