Founded in 1993 by histologist Steven Xia, Boster Bio is an antibody
manufacturer specializing in high-sensitivity, high-specificity, ELISA kits and WB/IHC
compatible antibodies. We have spent the last two and half decades perfecting our techniques
and technology and our products have been well-cited in over 29,000 publications. Our
antibodies are thoroughly validated for IHC, WB, ELISA and Flow Cytometry. We strive to
provide best service and has earned the trust of researchers worldwide. All products are
covered by the Boster Quality Guarantee, that each will work as advertised or your money
back. We are actively developing and launching more products each month. Collaborations are
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.
Fastest Growing Antibody Company
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.

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
trials to optimize the protocol. No bad things overall. I will purchase it
Zebrafish-specific antibody. Used in whole mount IF on 24hpf zebrafish embryos.
signal is not precisely clean, but we do observe nlz2 expression in the ventral
of the retina as expected from in situ hybridization
results. This antibody shows some promising results in whole mount applications
24hpf embryos. Applications with cryosections may be more precise.

Boster ELISA Kits
Sensitivity, specificity, service and selection
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
Thoroughly validated for WB, IHC and Flow
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
Save cost and get better results
Boster offers a variety of services for scientists. We can produce custom
