So, if I understand correctly, the primary antibody of mice and rabbits will also respond the same way as human antibodies to the Epstein-Barr virus?

comment Conjugate secondary antibody
@AlanBoyd Sorry, I still have some doubt whether I grasp secundary antibodies. Every species has (or better: can have) a secondary antibody per animal right? So for example; we can have secondary antibodies for primary antibodies of rabbits, chimps, mice, etc. So that would still be a lot of possible secondary antibodies, but anyway less than primary antibodies.

comment Why does the cold make us sick?
But a virus must be considerably more stable in colder air, since 'catching a cold' from the cold is very easy, and I have never caught a cold in the summer. Is it that considerable a difference?

In other words; otherwise you would have to make a conjugate for every primary antibody?
