How To Validate Your Antibodies

Antibodies are an invaluable tool in the laboratory. Whether imaging cells, checking for the presence of a specific protein or developing a diagnostic test, antibodies can hold the key to your needs. BUT, scientists beware! Failure to validate one’s experimental antibodies effectively prior to use can lead to non-reproducible results, false positives and negatives and many wasted hours, reagents and samples – particularly problematic for precious material.
