Image: For five (1-5) diagnostic antibodies: specific-binding curves of Total IgY in a complex protein solution binding to immobilized antigen. Data provide direct information about the specificity of three different production batches, highly valuable information especially for development of diagnostic assays. Curves for all antigen spots are shown. Binding of IgY is observed only to its respective immobilized antigen. (Photo courtesy of Sanovo Biotech).
