Creative Diagnostics provides the most cost-effective custom chicken IgY antibody production services in the industry. We offer standard 56 day chicken production packages which consist of 4 immunizations, resulting in the collection of 12-15 eggs per chicken (please see example project timeline below). We typically use 2 chickens for each project.
Creative Diagnostics provides free antigen design to assist in selection of the best possible antigen sequence for eliciting the desired antibody response. We use the latest in software with the proper algorithms to assess antigenicity, hydrophilicity, flexibility, secondary structure and aggregation potential.

How much antigen should you ship us?
We recommend immunization with, between 0.7 and 1 milligrams of purified recombinant protein or peptide conjugate per hen and prefer a concentration of at least 2 mg/ml. If you would like your IgY affinity purified, we need additional antigen at a concentration greater than 3 mg/ml to make an affinity column. The amount of immunogen required to make your affinity column depends on how much affinity purified IgY is needed for your project.
Where do you ship your antigen?
For those customers requiring large scale production of IgY, we can meet your specific requirements. All laboratory work is performed using standard operating procedures to assure the highest quality of your custom product depending on your immunogen, how much IgY is required and over what time-frame, we will design a custom project that will suit your needs.
For bulk quantities of IgY, we usually recommend multiple hen immunizations and the pooling of their eggs for IgY purification. Following our standard immunization protocol (4 immunizations over 40 days), hens receive a booster shot every 70 days to maintain a high titre yolk.
