Cytokines and Growth Factors

When you need an antibody for a cytokine (Cy) or growth factor (Gf), it’s quick work to just plug in the terms in your favorite search engine and press “Enter.”  You’ll likely end up with a more than generous list of off-the-shelf antibody companies from which to choose. Yet that “quick work” might actually end up adding delays to your research if what you thought you were buying doesn’t turn out to be what you need (take, for instance, if you needed an antibody to TNFɑ.)

Put simply, despite featuring similar names and functions, not all antibodies are created equal (neither are antibody producers, for that matter).

cytokineFor more than 20 years, Antibody Solutions has been a qualified, go-to source for both fit-for-purpose and ready-made antibodies. Our team has generated monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies to over 50 cytokines and growth factors, and we have leveraged our validated platform for generation of antibodies to CD Antigens, including proven immunization and screening procedures. You can count on us to provide:

  • Expertise around Cy and Gf—critically, how to characterize them and how they function
  • An extra level of validation for the antibodies we generate on your behalf, going above and beyond standard characterization and testing
  • Recommendations surrounding secondary or downstream characterization services for comprehensive characterization of antibodies (we don’t just sell a binder; instead, we offer  you something that’s been tested for bioactivity in a functional assay)
  • High-quality off-the-shelf antibodies that come with product data sheets detailing what they will do and what they won’t do (so there are no surprises—early or late in your research)

Making a sound, informed purchase decision—the kind that yields the right results for you—is made easier when you have a team that can both develop customized antibodies as well as validate commercially available proteins and reagents. To discover firsthand just how valuable that approach can be for your next project, contact us today to get started.
