Some quick facts about us
A brief history of Boster over the years
In 1993, Steven developed Boster’s first product, in a room no larger than a small household garage.
His friends made fun of him and gave him the nickname “he who converts science in the lavatory”.
In the early days Boster developed various products for IHC and EM.
In late 90s, Boster developed hundreds of primary antibodies, and became the biggest catalog antibody company in China at the time.
After years of research and development, Boster was able to create a proprietary ELISA platform, PicoKine™.
About a dozen in-house developed trade secretes empower Boster’s high-sensitivity ELISA kits to deliver repeatable results.
In 2006, Boster started to form partnerships with distributors and OEM partners around the globe.
Today Boster products are used around the world by academics and industrial users alike, for WB, IHC, ELISA and Flow.
In 2012, Boster established office in Pleasanton California to better service its global customers.
Since then Boster’s brand awareness have been significantly improved globally. Many partnerships were established.
In 2016, Boster was rated the fastest growing antibody company in the WORLD, by CiteAb.com.
To date, more than 20,000 publications cited Boster’s products and the number is accelerating.
What life scientists are saying about Boster Products
Maria Teresa Dell'Anno
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.

Good Zebrafish Antibody For Nlz2
Zebrafish-specific antibody. Used in whole mount IF on 24hpf zebrafish embryos. The signal is not precisely clean, but we do observe nlz2 expression in the ventral region of the retina as expected from in situ hybridization results. This antibody shows some promising results in whole mount applications using 24hpf embryos. Applications with cryosections may be more precise.

A Good PKC Alpha Antibody For IP And WB
We used Anti-PKC Alpha Picoband™ Antibody for immunoprecipitation experiment from neuronal cells in order to characterize PKC Alpha expression in different conditions. Strong positive band with right mass. Works great without optimization! Good quality and ready for publish Ab

Our Picokine ELISA kits are empowered by our proprietary coating and blocking technology to achieve picogram level sensitivity and minimal background. These ELISA kits are validated against biologically relevant matrices, from cell culture supernatants to blood plasma, to guarantee good results for any application. We thoroughly test and document the inter and intra assay variabilities for each batch of kits and ensure lot-to-lot consistency, so you can generate quality, reproducible results. All our validation images are published on our website, and you can contact us for a detailed write-up of our validation procedure.
Boster takes great measures to ensure antibody quality and to provide our customers with comprehensive data upfront. Our antibodies are validated using WB and IHC against a panel of over 250 tissues and un-transfected cell lines to ensure high affinity and crystal-clear IHC stains. In addition, we also validate our antibodies in a quantitative fashion by testing them on known quantities of recombinant proteins so that you know what to expect (e.g. if there is 1ng, 2.5ng or 5ng of the target protein in the sample). All our validation images are published on our website, and you can contact us for a detailed write-up of our validation procedure.
Boster offers a variety of services for scientists. We can produce custom antibodies from antigen design, antigen production to antibody purification and validation, a true one-stop shop experience. We also offer CRO service for IHC, WB, ELISA and custom assay developments. If you are seeking a service lab to partner with, look no further.
Our technical resources are free to access and download at your convenience, and our customer support is at your service within 24 hours. We take pride in our high standard of quality and we transparently share our validation data so you can get better data with less time, less money, and less frustration.
