For each antibody, Addgene provides a list of recommended applications. These recommendations are based on a thorough review of experiments performed at Addgene or at outside labs. Addgene has partnered with outside labs in order to provide careful testing of our antibodies in applications that we are not able to test at our own facilities. Addgene works carefully with these trusted partner labs to ensure that experiments include proper controls and sufficient experimental details and these labs are denoted with an “Addgene Partner” badge. Please note that we show results for applications that work well with our antibody (Recommended) as well as those that do not (Not recommended) so be sure to check the results! Finally, keep in mind that antibody performance will vary across sample types and experimental parameters and will require optimization for your specific experiment.
The list of recommended applications is not exhaustive. There may be many applications for which any given antibody has not yet been tested. Addgene will continue to work with both depositing and recipient scientists to refine these lists. If your lab has used one of Addgene’s antibodies in additional assays, please consider sharing your data with Addgene by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
