“Is it the antibody?” Tips for caring for your antibody for consistent results
Nov 10, 2015 Since antibodies are so critical to your research, why not provide them with the best care possible so they can continue to work hard for you Probably the worst thing to happen to a researcher is to have an experiment work once and then never work again. There are lots of possible reasons why such a scenario could occur, however one question that comes up time and time again is: “is it the antibody?” Antibodies are generally robust, but they…
New Secondary Antibody Guide
We have updated our popular flow cytometry guide which still contains a basic overview of all the important facets of flow cytometry without delving too deeply into the complex mathematics and physics. To help with this we have created a handy pocket version of our popular flow cytometry guide which contains a basic overview of all the important features of flow cytometry, from instrument to experiment.

The ABCs of finding a good antibody: How to find a good antibody, validate it, and publish...
Finding an antibody that works for a specific application can be a difficult task. Hundreds of vendors offer millions of antibodies, but the quality of these products and available validation information varies greatly. In addition, several studies have called into question the reliability of published data as the primary metric for assessing antibody quality. We briefly discuss the antibody quality problem and provide best practice guidelines…
