About Synaptic Systems
Synaptic Systems is a Biotech company with focus on the development and production of antibodies against synaptic proteins. They are located in Göttingen, Germany. Founded in 1996 Synaptic Systems GmbH initially offered only a small subset of well characterized antibodies directed against targets relevant in neuroscience research. The company expanded rapidly due to a carefully culitvated exceptional reputation for offering high quality, proven research reagents to the neuroscience research community.
Beeing an active research facility with years of expertise, most antibodies are exclusively available from Synaptic Systems and have been developed in-house. Close collaboration with academic partners and renowned experts in the field results in high product quality standards as well as extensive characterization. New antibodies are routinely tested for a set of different applications like immunoblotting, immunofluorescence, ELISA and immunoprecipitation.
Tailor-made Antibodies for the Neuroscientist & Cellbiologist
The Biotech company is part of the Eurospin project (European Consortium on Synaptic Protein Networks) which strives to understand the synaptic transmission at the genetic, molecular and network level with a focus to restoring normal synaptic function. They aim to develop novel therapies for synaptopathies (neurodegenerative diseases, schizophrenia, autism, depression etc.). Synaptic Systems has already available antibodies directed against various neuroligins, DLG, and active zone proteins that will be in the focus of investigation in the course of the project.
Synaptic Systems retains tight control of their quality name brand, and continues to develop a majority of their offerings in-house. These antibodies are marketed and sold exclusively under the SySy label to avoid any customer confusion or repeat purchase of the same product under different brand names. The availability of an in-house research and development team allows Synaptic Systems to offer custom monoclonal antibody production services to its clients. Other custom services may be available upon request.
