September is World Alzheimer’s Month, an international campaign to raise dementia awareness and challenge stigma, and the purple ribbon is the chosen color to represent awareness for Alzheimer’s disease.
According to WHO, over 50 million people worldwide have dementia. As the most common form of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease contributes to 60-70% cases of dementia. Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by an irreversible decline in cognitive and behavioral abilities that will eventually render the person completely reliant on others for basic activities in daily life.

Boster takes great measures to ensure product quality and to provide our customers with comprehensive data upfront. Our antibodies are validated using WB, IHC, and flow cytometry 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). Every product is covered by the Boster Quality Guarantee, click below to learn more.
