The protocols described in this unit can be used for generating and testing anti-peptide antisera, assuming that a scientist has already selected and conjugated peptides for experimental vaccines. Described are immunization and bleeding of experimental animals, a simple ELISA for antiserum screening, and affinity purification of the serum, including preparation of columns.
