What life scientists are saying about Boster Products

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 ELISA antibody validation standard.

Boster Antibodies

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 antibody validation standard.
