|Listeria monocytogenes (Listeria) is a foodborne pathogen that infects mainly pregnant women, newborns, older adults, and immunocompromised hosts. Methods for detecting Listeria are in high demand, and the most effective methods require highly selective antibodies.
Purdue University researchers have generated monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against Listeria. Monoclonal antibodies are identical antibodies that all recognize the same epitope, a part of an antigen that is recognized by the immune system. These highly specific mAbs can be used in bioassays that detect Listeria in food, soil, water, or clinical specimens.
-Highly selective antibodies can be used for bioassays of other diagnostic tools
