In brief: Abs from one cell.

Monoclonal antibodies are those that are produced by the identical immune cells that are descended from the same parent cell.
They produce anitibodies that bind to only one epitope or site on an antigen. This means that they are monospecific. This makes them useful in things like research because they can isolate a strain purely and completely.
