Hi Kathleen:

There is a polyclonal from Sigma that was raised in rabbit; I have tried
it, and in my hands it did not work very well, certainly not as well as
the monoclonals raised in mice that I have tried. My best results have
come from a Promega anti beta-gal antibody, but alas, that too is a
monoclonal raised in mice. Anyway, you could try the Sigma antibody;
maybe it would work better for you.
