HuCAL antibodies can be detected in several ways, depending on the specific format of the HuCAL FAb antibody and the application of interest.
Since HuCAL monoclonal antibodies are human Fab molecules, they can be detected by antisera against human IgG F(ab’)2 preparations.
HuCAL antibodies are usually equipped with one or two epitope tags genetically fused to the
C-terminus of the antibody heavy chain. These can be detected using commercially available anti-tag antibodies, such as His-6, V5, and Strep-tag® from AbD Serotec.
In some cases bivalent Fab antibodies are generated by genetic fusion of bacterial alkaline phosphatase, which is a homo-dimer. The addition of this enzyme allows for either direct detection of alkaline phosphatase activity or indirect detection with an anti-alkaline phosphatase antibody
