Antibody testing on cell pellets
Rigorous Validation of Custom and Commercial Antibodies
The two most important elements of a successful IHC assay are reliable antibodies and tissue integrity. To address this, Ensigna has put in place a series of validation steps using cell pellets and archival tissues. We validate commercial antibodies or your own custom antibodies.
We undertake the entire process, including the generation of controls, the screening of antibodies and the optimization of the IHC assay. Our approach includes orthogonal methods like Q-PCR, western blot and flow cytometry. We exceed the highest standards practiced in the industry.
