Millipore Launches Antibody Learning Center
News Apr 16, 2008
Millipore Corporation has announced the launch of the new Antibody Learning Center, a free web tool for navigating Millipore’s broad antibody portfolio and planning efficient workflows for immunodetection in specific focus areas of protein research.
Now that Upstate and Chemicon are part of Millipore, Millipore’s antibody offerings span the entire range of biological research, from neuroscience, cell signaling and nuclear function, to cell structure and adhesion, and apoptosis. The Antibody Learning Center conveniently organizes the entire antibody collection into specific focus areas. Researchers can find the relevant antibodies to answer a particular question while they are also alerted to important, related proteins, extending the scope of their research.
As Millipore extends its antibody offerings, we also validate all antibodies with appropriate techniques and documented protocols such as Western blotting or more rigorous applications, such as immunoprecipitation or immunohistochemistry.
The Antibody Learning Center is fully integrated with Millipore’s online product catalog, providing customers with valuable technical and validation information. Customers who have trusted Millipore’s filtration and water purification products for decades can now depend on Millipore antibodies and invaluable customer service. For many, this service will begin at the Antibody Learning Center, at www.millipore.com/antibodies.
As genome editing technologies advance toward clinical therapies, they are raising hopes of a completely new way to treat disease. However, challenges need to be addressed before potential treatments can be widely used in patients. To tackle these challenges, the National Institutes of Health has launched the Somatic Cell Genome Editing program, which has awarded multiple grants including more than $3.6 million to assess the safety of genome editing in human cells and tissues.
