Independent Validation

Four more antibodies for the application Western Blotting successfully validated

Independent Validation

Four more antibodies for the detection of different antigens were successfully tested in a Western Blot experiment. Among those products three antibodies were tested while using HeLa cell as positive controls. Those three were specific for the detection of Caspase 8, SMAD1, and MAP2K2. The last product recognizes PALB2 in A549 cells.

Independent Validation
In mid 2013 the "Independent Validation Initiative" started as a partnership between Science Exchange and The project aims to enable scientists to select products (presently antibodies or ELISA kits) of their interest to be validated by labs from top academic research institutes.

Since we started the initiative we have successfully validated 92 products. The first was a anti-Fibrinogen antibody, followed by a couple of other interesting antibodies and ELISA kits. The latest succesfully validated products were the antibodies for the detection of Caspase 8, SMAD1, MAP2K2, and PALB2. A few more products are currentlly being validated.

If you are interested in having a product validated, you can simply click the "Request validation" button on the product site. When requesting a validation you can specify the application the product should be validated for. Validation is free for all customers and costs will be covered by the respective supplier.
