Anti-PolyHistidin antibody - Best His6 antibody for western (Aug/16/2006 )

Hi, there!
Some info. gathering before I spend a few hundreds $!
I need to buy anti-His6 antibody. Mostly, it will be used for western. Protein is expressed from the cDNA containing nucleic acids for His6 epitope tag. I introduced only 6x His, not any other amino acid to C-teriminus of protein.
Can anyone recommend a good, if possbile, cheap, antibody?
Monoclonal is better, but polyclonal will do if it is known not to have many nonspecific bands or background issue.
Thanks bunch in advance! smile.gif

its pretty cheap and they sell it in small amounts, link below



The anti-His from BD is also good
