About this book

The now classic lab manual Antibodies, by Harlow and Lane, has been revised, extended, and updated by Edward Greenfield of the Dana-Farber Cancer Center, with contributions from other leaders in the field. This second edition of Antibodies is an essential resource for molecular biology, immunology, and cell culture labs on all matters relating to antibodies. The chapters on hybridomas and monoclonal antibodies have been recast with extensive new information and there are additional chapters on characterizing antibodies, antibody engineering, and flow cytometry. As in the original book, the emphasis in this second edition is on providing clear and authoritative protocols with sufficient background information and troubleshooting advice for the novice as well as the experienced investigator.

[Antibodies aims] to put current immunological methodology into the hands of non-specialists. Happily, Harlow and Lane have succeeded admirably and this manual seems certain also to gain a place on the laboratory bench (too useful to remain on the bookshelf) of a wide variety of biologists--even immunologists.
