Coming Soon! We offer a selection of goat polyclonal antibodies in the regenerative medicine and metabolism fields. Available for purchase through Obatala Sciences.Browse antibody catalog
- Tailored to the model organism or species that you study
- Alternative host for multiple labeling experiments
- Large lot sizes for consistency
Heavy-chain only antibodies (the precursor to single domain antibodies)
- Smaller size to reach inaccessible epitopes
- Easier to sequence and express recombinantly
- Enhanced stability
We emphasize the health and happiness of our goats and alpacas, through pasture, diet and enrichment.
We customize every project, but typically, this is how it goes:
Antigen Design: 1-2 weeks
Antigen Synthesis: multiple antigenic peptide (MAP) (4-6 weeks)
Day 0: Preimmune serum, initial injection of antigen and adjuvant
Day 18: Test sample and first booster. Subsequent boosters based upon ELISA titer.
Day 28: Begin collecting antiserum weekly.
Package 1: Antigen design and synthesis, immunization, ELISA, antiserum. $2000
Package 2: Package 1, plus antigen-specific purification. $5000
Our alpaca offerings are highly customized, depending upon whether you want PBMCs to construct a phage display VHH library, or polyclonal antisera.
Our experience suggests that proteins are the best antigens to use with alpacas. Once we have the protein, the typical schedule is similar to goats, but we find that the heavy chain antibody response takes longer to develop than the conventional antibody response.
Inquire for costs.
We can supply PBMCs for VHH libraries from naive alpacas upon request.
Availability varies, so please contact us to inquire.
PBMCs, shipped next day delivery in RNAlater. $5000

We can also supply other alpaca serum or plasma products- if you are interested in something not listed here, then get in touch!
After years at the bench, we noticed a common theme. Every researcher, at one time or another, struggles to find the perfect antibody. We started Talaria to make custom antibody production more accessible, whatever your research needs. We strive to be a partner at every step of the journey, from antigen design through purification. Collectively, we have decades of experience across multiple research fields and model organisms, with a passion for making your research easier.
To keep our alpacas in a climate more reminiscent of their ancestral home in the Andes, we opt for the colder climate in southern Canada. They are kept in a CCAC-approved environment, with handling and training protocols designed especially to minimize handling stress during injections and blood draws. Animals are brought indoors overnight and during inclement weather, and spend their days in a lovely pasture with a wind shelter and predator-resistant fencing.
Our goats are housed on dry lot pasture in the Southern US at an AAALAC-approved facility. They receive plenty of fresh air and sunshine! In addition, we focus closely on diet, continually innovating and updating to improve nutrition. B vitamins, selenium and vitamin E are particularly important, as is careful attention to hay quality. Goats are kept in a small flock to allow them the social interaction so integral to their natural behavior.
