Scientists say...

Anti-GFAP Antibody (PA1239)


"This Antibody Works Perfectly!"

"I used it for IHC on frozen sections at a dilution of 1:500. It did not need several trials to optimize the protocol. No bad things overall. I will purchase it again."


Mouse TNF Alpha ELISA Kit (EK0527)


"Great TNF alpha Kit"

"This ELISA kit worked as advertised. Wells can be removed as strips, so not everything has to be used. Great product. Results are good and have low %CV. Quick assay kit and cheaper than other companies in my opinon."
