Anti-Bacteria Primary Antibodies

KPL's BacTrace® anti-bacteria antibodies have served as key tools for life scientists and diagnostic kit manufacturers in food pathology and infectious disease for 30 years. KPL's premium affinity purification process permits the selection of highly sensitive polyclonal antibodies that offer a range of benefits in the development of high performance immunoassays.

  • Enhanced sensitivity - Affinity purified polyclonal antibodies provide maximal detection of the antigen of interest. They recognize a variety of cell surface and intracellular antigens of bacterial cells, thereby greatly amplifying the signal.
  • Excellent specificity - Affinity purification selects for the antibody of interest and enables production of antibodies with high specificity for the target antigen and minimal cross-reactivity.
  • Lot-to-lot reproducibility - High correlation between antibody lots is verified by extensive in-house testing. Click on image to view larger version.


Salmonella and E.coli reproducibility


  • Variety of formats to fit your assay requirements - BacTrace antibodies are available unlabeled or labeled with enzymes, fluorophores. biotin and in select cases DyLight 488 for use as detection antibody in rapid screening applications, such as ELISA, Western blotting and immunohistochemistry. Positive controls are offered for assay development. Learn more about our BacTrace affinity purified antibodies to food-borne pathogens.
