It’s a big step. It’s stressful. Deciding which antibody will be “the one” in your ChIP applications isn’t easy, but you can relax a bit now as our good friends at Abcam must have sensed a touch of that antibody commitment-phobia within the research ranks, as they’ve just launched Abcam Antibody Panels; a way to let researchers “play the field” with trial-sized aliquots of antibody sets before they decide to settle down with just one.
Find a Great Mate
It can be tough finding the antibody that works best for you. That’s where Antibody Panels comes in. They offer multiple antibodies to popular histone mods and DNA repair genes, like eHarmony for antibodies minus the lengthy application, so that you can get to know a little bit about each one before you choose which is ideal for your needs. And each antibody in the histone mod panels has been validated in ChIP assays, to insure that you won’t end up with a dud.
These are just a few of the options researchers have:
- Histone H3 (tri-methylation) Panel
- Histone H3 (K4 methylation) Panel
- Histone H3 (K9 methylation) Panel
- Histone H3 (K27 methylation) Panel
- RNA Polymerase II CTD Panel
Just a few of the head shots of the antibodies in Abcam’s Panels. Don’t worry…they don’t just produce pretty data, they have great personalities too.
Budget Friendly Antibody Evaluation
Abcam Antibody Panels help keep lab costs in line because you don’t pay for extra material that you won’t use. Whether you’re assessing which antibody to use in larger scale experiments, or you just want to run a one-off pilot study, the sample-sized panels let you get the job done for about 1/3rd the cost of buying the antibodies separately. Nice.
