Your ELISA kit is missing something! If you're still using ELISA for biomarker analysis, you're missing out on vital insight. You're also leaving time, money, and sample on the table. Learn about antibody arrays, a better solution for complete biomarker analysis. Read more
Five tips for choosing the perfect primary antibody
Here are a few tips to help you minimize the amount of time you spend searching for the right antibody so that you can get your experiment up and running as quickly as possible Read more
An Introduction to Fluorescence (Part 1)
Fluorescence is a property possessed by certain materials, known as fluorophores, by which these materials absorb short-wavelength incident radiation and emit longer-wavelength radiation. Read more
An Introduction to Fluorescence (Part 2)
Fluorescence is among the most extensively studied of all natural phenomena. For most fluorescent probes there are a set of precise measurements that can help a researcher accurately compare the performance of a specific fluorophore. Some of the more commonly referenced criteria are listed below: Read more
Antimicrobial peptides and the innate immune system
Anyone who has taken a collegiate level introductory course in microbiology, medicine, or immunology is aware of the fact that modern multicellular organisms are constantly under assault by a barrage of pathogenic infectious microorganisms. Read more
Electrophoresis is a common molecular biology technique that is used to separate biological materials by virtue of their size and/or charge. Read more
Proximity Ligation Assay
Traditional methods for identifying protein-protein interactions include a host of complex experiments like two-hybrid assays and co-immunoprecipitations. While these experiments do provide the opportunity to assay interaction, they are not without several well-known and inherent limitations. Read more
Smartox Biotechnology: Synthetic Polypeptide Toxins for Research Applications
Toxins have always captured the interest of curious biomedical and life-science researchers. Early toxicological research predominantly focused on development of therapeutic countermeasures and understanding of the evolutionary framework under which biological toxin development originated.

What is a nanobody?
A nanobody, also known as a single-domain antibody (sdAb), is an antibody fragment consisting of a single monomeric variable antibody domain. Read more
Biotinylated Proteins: Better insight through better binding
The bond between Biotin and Streptavidin is one of the strongest non-covalent bonds ever identified. It is frequently exploited in molecular biology to couple two different molecules that would not traditionally bind each other. Read more
