COVID-19 antibodies enable tissue-based detection of viral infection
HistoSure’s novel monoclonal COVID-19 antibodies developed to enable tissue-based detection of viral infection in human clinical samples have shown excellent performance in ELISA-based detection of viral nucleocapsid protein.
HistoSure, a product line of Synaptic Systems GmbH, a renowned developer and manufacturer of antibodies, is dedicated to providing highly validated and tested antibodies for pre-clinical and clinical research. As the Covid-19 pandemic progresses, reliable antibodies to investigate the effects of SARS-CoV-2 in the human body become increasingly important. HistoSure offers two highly specific mouse monoclonal antibodies directed against the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein. Both have been developed and tested to ensure superior performance on FFPE tissue (IHC-P), IHC and in ELISA applications.
- Clone 4A8 mouse anti-SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein (Isotype IgG2b) (cat. no. HS-452 011)
- Clone 53E2 mouse anti-SARS-CoV-2 and SARS-CoV-1 nucleocapsid protein (Isotype IgG2a) (cat. no. HS-452 111)
SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid antibodies detect virus-infected cells in human clinical samples
The SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid antibodies from HistoSure are especially useful to detect virus-infected cells in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded human clinical samples. The Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) located in Hamburg, Germany has successfully implemented the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid antibodies from HistoSure for detection of viral components in the lungs of COVID-19 patients using automated slide staining systems.
SARS-CoV antibodies enable virus research in mouse models of COVID-19 infection
K18-hACE2 transgenic mice are powerful models of severe COVID-19 disease. Few days after intranasal viral inoculation, infectious virus is detected in various organs and in the nervous system. In cooperation with Prof. Kröger and Prof. Cicin-Sain of the Helmholtz Center for Infection research in Braunschweig, Germany, SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid antibodies from HistoSure have been shown to enable cellular detection of viral particles in infected mouse organs.
Synaptic System supports Sars-CoV-2 and Sars-CoV-1 research by providing virus subtype-specific antibodies
The SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid antibodies from HistoSure are especially useful to discriminate SARS-CoV-1 and Sars-CoV-2 viral particles as clone 4A8 recognises exclusively the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid whereas clone 53E2 recognizes SARS-CoV-1 and SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid proteins. Both antibodies have been shown to not bind nucleocapsid proteins of other coronavirus strains.
COVID-19 antibodies show excellent performance in ELISA-based detection of viral nucleocapsid protein
The SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid antibodies from HistoSure show superior performance in Sandwich ELISA settings and enable quantitative viral nucleocapsid detection in liquid samples.
Clone #4A8 (cat.no. HS-452 011) was coated as capture antibody and Biotinylated clone #53E2 (cat.no. HS-452 111BT, 1:2000) was used as a detection antibody.
