I'm looking for a good Hepatitis B Surface Antigen antibody. Must be ASR. I know recently some companies changed from IVD to ASR or RUO. In our clinical setting it must be at least ASR. Also, I understand that it matters whether we use a polyclonal or monoclonal antibody. Should I assume that the antibody must be polyclonal for this virus as some others viruses require it, so it's not too specific and may miss positive cases?
So, the questions are:
which antibody for HBsAg that's ASR (no RUO labeled)
and polyclonal or monoclonal?
Antibody consistency from the company is important as we use concentrated antibodies.
