We also offer opsonizing reagents for enhancing the uptake of BioParticles products. These reagents are derived from purified rabbit polyclonal IgG antibodies that are specific for the E. coli (E2870), S. aureus (S2860) or zymosan (Z2850) particles. Reconstitution of the lyophilized opsonizing reagents requires only the addition of water, and one unit of opsonizing reagent is sufficient to opsonize ~10 mg of the corresponding BioParticles product.
