3 case studies: antibodies are valuable tools in clinical research

October 01, 2019

Applied biological or biomedical research aims to reach a thorough understanding of the physiology of organisms and to further development of disease therapeutics. Some scientific discoveries have narrow applicability or scope and are sometimes serendipitous or even entirely unexpected. Other have wider applicability and transferability having proved enormously useful over a wide range of domains. Among the latter are research antibodies. Read more to discover how they help progressing science.

We have run the exact same experiment. I found X. You found Y. Why? Have you been in this conversation with a collaborator? Have you ever obtained amazing results which contradict previous theory? Before you read on, take a moment to answer that for yourself. What was your reaction? “It is all my fault. I must have done something wrong” or “Interesting, I never thought about that before…”

Have you heard of The Domino Effect? I’m sure you have but let me remind you what it is. The Domino Effect is the cumulative, often disastrous, effect produced when one single event sets off a chain of other events, the last one depending on the very first one.

A ‘domino effect’ is not merely a phenomenon that just happens to you, but something you can control and drive. It is in your power to pick the cards that lead towards success. So why not to start with an antibody that you can trust?

Journals require validated antibodies. What does that mean for me?

November 19, 2018

Antibody validation is critical to reproducibility and a necessary step to increase the security of antibody specificity in every specific context relating the target protein, sample, and application. Yet all too often, antibody-based published data cannot be reproduced. If you want your scientific project to be taken seriously, you should spend some time upfront to validate your antibodies before starting the project. Read on to know why this is so important.
