Further Considerations of Antibody Validation and Usage: How to Avoid Reviewer Challenges
16 June 2016
This white paper discusses some important considerations in choosing antibodies and addresses some of the key reviewer comment trends. The effective use of antibodies in research assays has always depended on multiple factors that determine the accuracy and precision of the component reagents. Research from a discussion lead by the journal Science has revealed that sensitivity, reproducibility, target specificity and application specificity are the four characteristics that define quality antibody development and validation.
