An adjuvant, which is a chemical that provokes a generalized activation of the immune system that stimulates greater antibody production, is often mixed with the antigen prior to injection. In the broad sense, it refers to the entire process of creating a usable specific antibody, including steps of immunogen preparation, immunization, hybridoma creation, collection, screening, isotyping, purification, and labeling for direct use in a particular method. It is still largely dependent upon animal testing however. The ion exchange steps can operate either in bindandelute or flowthrough mode. The choice of adjuvant and immunization schedules are critical components of the polyclonal antibody production process that are frequently overlooked as researchers resort to standard published methodologies cooper and paterson, 2008, 2009. Production of monoclonal antibodies involves the in vitro combination of two types of cells.
