Validating Antibodies for Research Applications in IHC

Will Howat, PhD, Director of Antibody Validation & Characterisation, Abcam
Damian Cockfield, Global Product Manager - BOND, Leica Biosystems

CONTACT YOUR RESEARCH EXPERT

The importance of building a validation structure within your lab cannot be overstated. Once in place, the ability to identify high-quality specific results compared to spurious, non-specific antibody staining on tissue will be easier and allow the researcher to focus on downstream applications, such as single and multiplex IHC. This webinar will focus on the steps and challenges in antibody selection and validation to enable success and reproducibility in antibody staining in IHC.

 

Learning Objectives

  • How to select and validate antibodies for research applications in  IHC
  • Understand the reagents and tools available today to support the validation of antibodies for research applications in  IHC
