A New (and open-access!) Antibody Search Platform: BenchSci

Posted by on July 13th, 2017

Antibodies are one of the most commonly used research reagents. However, due to their innate variability, finding the right antibody can be a challenge. Scientists devote a significant amount of time sifting through the literature to find antibodies that have been shown to work under specific experimental contexts matching their research interests. This process often[…]

Labome releases Validated Antibody Database (VAD) version 2.2

Posted by on March 22nd, 2016

Developmental biologists use antibodies extensively to study the gene expression during different stages.  However, there is a lack of specific antibodies against many proteins related to development.  In addition, some antibodies yield unspecific and/or irreproducible results.   To help alleviate this antibody quality and specificity problem, Labome sought to organize antibody applications cited in formal[…]
