Antibody Validation

Antibody Validation

Delivering high-quality antibodies requires us to perform rigorous specificity and sensitivity testing in order to provide our customers with reliable tools that generate consistent results. Our standard antibody validation processes include verification for each recommended immunodetection application. Each of the thousands of antibodies in or portfolio are certified through our standard validation process to ensure quality and reproducibility.

Standard Antibody Validation

Enhanced Antibody Validation

In answer to calls for more stringent corroboration of immunodetection application-based antibody validation, we are pleased to offer enhanced validation for many antibodies in our portfolio. Enhanced validation (EV) data that are now represented on our product pages align with several of the 2016 IWGAV guidelines for more rigorous specificity testing, and are available for those antibodies in our catalog that carry the EV symbol. All antibodies we offer that carry the ‘EV’ symbol will be accompanied by data resulting from one or more of these enhanced validation strategies.
