With over 25 years of experience, Boster Bio now offers a catalog of 7000+ IHC antibodies. Our antibodies are transparently validated by IHC and WB using real tissues and un-transfected cell lines to guarantee high affinity and minimum cross-reactivity. We now feature Boster's Picoband™ antibodies, the highest affinity antibodies determined by Boster’s rigorous validation process.

Picoband™ antibodies are hand-picked for high affinity by validation on WB and IHC using a panel of over 250 tissues and un-transfected cell lines to eliminate cross-reactivity and ensure sufficient affinity for endogenous protein concentrations. Boster also tests antibodies quantitatively on Western Blot, and only those that react with as little as 1 ng of antigen will qualify as Picoband™. Boster is committed to maintaining the highest standard of quality, and our products have been cited in 23,000+ publications. Get better results with Boster! For a limited time only, get one secondary antibody for free (biotin or HRP conjugated) with each purchase of any primary antibody. Take advantage of Boster's promotions today.

"This Antibody Works Perfectly!"



SUMMARY: Anti-GFAP Antibody (PA1239)

Applications Immunohistochemistry
Sample Spinal cord
Detection Confocal microscope

"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."

SUMMARY: Anti-Tryptophan Hydroxylase Antibody (Monoclonal, WH-3) (MA1099)

Applications Immunohistochemistry
Sample Wistar rat brain
Detection Fluorescence

"The goal was to identify the dorsal raphe in rat brains, an area rich in serotonergic neurons, so that I could determine double-label in that region. I had been using an AB from Abcam, but they stopped making it. Found this product with a google search, and the vendor had a fair return policy. Strong signal that identifies dorsal raphe; aqueductus alone is not sufficient landmark. Great for free floating sections fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde. Probably can be used at less than 1:500."

Anti-CD47 Antibody (PA2223)

Source: Customer Feedback Submission

"This antibody gives strong membrane staining"

-- Peter J. Thompson, UCSF Diabetes Center, Postdoctoral Scholar


SUMMARY: Anti-CD47 Antibody (PA2223)

Applications IHC-Paraffin, IHC-cryo
Sample NOD/ShiLtJ mouse pancreas sections, formalin-fixed paraffin embedded
Detection Zeiss Apotome widefield fluorescence microscope

"CD47 is broadly expressed in many cell types. This antibody gives strong membrane staining throughout many of the beta cells (Insulin-positive) in the immune cell infiltrated islets of NOD mice at age 12 weeks."
