High Affinity Monoclonal Antibodies for Detection of Shiga Toxin 2 (STX2)

High affinity monoclonal antibodies against Shiga toxin strain Stx2 and hybridomas that produce such antibodies are described. The antibodies may be used in a kit for detecting Stx2 and variants thereof in a sample.

Benefits

•  The hybridoma cell lines produce monoclonal antibodies that detect all four variants of Stx2
•  Immunoassays are rapid, highly specific and sensitive

 

Applications

•  Basis for developing a sensitive immunoassays for detecting variants for Shiga toxin 2
•Immunoassys could be used for monitoring and source-tracking food supplies as well as monitoring contamination of clinical and environmental samples such as feces, soil, air, and water.
 
 
Benefits: 
  • The hybridoma cell lines produce monoclonalantibodies that detect all four variants of Stx2
  • Immunoassays are rapid, highly specific andsensitive
