How do I dissociate my antigen from my antibody?

Because the binding is so tight, harsh methods are typically used to dissociate an antibody from its target antigen. One can use 0.1 M glycine, 0.5-1% Triton X-100 at pH 2.8 or boil in protein lysis buffer at 95-100ºC 5–10 min. Some vendors market a less harsh method of separating the two biomolecules (Pierce sells a gentle Ag/Ab elution buffer).
