Yep that was my experience, this was the most drastic difference between a
monoclonal and polyclonal antibody I have ever seen.

We just completed a large study on human prostate biopsies using the Santa
Cruz monoclonal VEGF (C1) following pronase pre-treatment and they all came
out  wonderful:  Very clean and the negative controls (no primary) were
completely negative.

I totally agree with you about Santa Cruz's poly VEGF but the mono was much
better.  I have a customer who still wants to use the poly vegf on sheep
placenta and I think it is awful but you have to give the customer what they
want.  I did a comparison with the poly and mono for them but they still
opted for the poly because it matched their molecular studies.  Oh well.  To
me it is all over the place but they seem to think that is expected for
their samples, they think is is real and call it "an expression antibody" or
something like that.
