Protein G purified polyclonal antibody to Legionella species made in rabbit. Isolated from a serum pool of rabbits immunized with various strains of heat-killed Legionella. The antibody is broady reactive to different strains of Legionella while demonstrating minimal cross-reactivity to related bacteria (Citrobacter, Salmonella, Escherichia, Yersinia, etc.). See chart below. Each lot is tested to assure specificity and lot-to-lot consistency using KPL's in-house ELISA assay.
