Polyclonal Antibody Production
Life Research has an extensive range of catalogue antibodies, but for cutting edge research our clients require the option to produce their own custom polyclonal antibodies.
Our custom polyclonal antibodies production service offers the following key features:
- Quality Guaranteed – all our antibodies must meet the pre-agreed quality outcomes1 before being sent to you... if it fails, you pay nothing.
- Guaranteed to Work in Your Experiment – Once we have confirmed the activity by ELISA we will send you a sample. If this sample does not perform to your satisfaction in your lab then we will have another go at making the antibody or provide you with a refund.2
- Best Australian Price – Do more research for each dollar of funding by leveraging our access to Australia’s lowest cost polyclonal antibody production.
Life Research offers the following two packages:
Package 1 – Immunisation and Purification (Stage II & III in timeline) – $1395 +GST
This package provides the client with Rabbit IgGs affinity-purified from 50 ml sera (from each of 2 rabbits). The client provides ≥8mg of synthetic peptide and is sent a sample of the Ab for testing along with an ELISA report confirming the high titer (> 50,000). If satisfied, the remainder of at least 2mg is provided. Project duration 3-4 months. Shipping included.
Package 2 – Peptide Antigen Synthesis, Immunisation and Purification (All Stages in timeline) – $1695 +GST
This package includes the production of the peptide (up to 15aa) and conjugation to carrier protein to provide an antigen for immunisation. The client provides details of the antigen and selection of the peptide sequence is assisted by algorithmic methods. An antigen report is generated for the client’s approval before commencement. Testing and delivery - as per package 1. Project duration - 3.5-4.5 months.
Option – ELISA/dot blot only Guarantee – Save $440 (incl. GST)
If you only require an ELISA guarantee for your custom antibody, you can take $440 off the price package. This guarantee1 extends only to ELISA performance conducted by Life Research.
The following timeline shows the key stages and steps in the production process:
Other service features and outcomes include:
- Complex projects like anti-phosphorylation specific antibodies can be managed.
- Additional animals can be ordered at $199 +GST per rabbit.
- Confidential project design and tracking of project status & progress.
- Substantial discounts are available for orders of more than 2 pAbs.
- For customer-provided antigens that are not synthetic peptides or for antibodies generated from other species, please Contact Us discuss the available alternate services

- 1 Our quality benchmark is that the ELISA activity of the antibody gives and OD450>0.25 when diluted 50,000x.
- 2 The refund available shall be less peptide synthesis if applicable ($330 incl. GST for single unmodified and ≤ 15 aa residue peptide).
