ADJUVANTS

Adjuvants, when used in conjunction with an immunogen during inoculation, can elicit a more intense immune response or stimulate immune response to antigens that are not inherently immunogenic. Explore our offering of adjuvant reagents, including our Sigma Adjuvant System® oil, Freund’s Adjuvant, Hemocyanin, Maleimide Activated BSA, Pristane synthetic, and TiterMax® Adjuvant liquids.

Prestige PrEST Antigens™ AND BLOCKING PROTOCOL POWERED BY ATLAS ANTIBODIES

Strengthen your research with Prestige Antibodies® by complementing with corresponding Prestige PrEST Antigens™. Every Prestige antibody has its immunizing antigen available for use in blocking or as a control.

ANTIBODY BLOCKING REAGENTS AND SUBSTRATES

Incubation with blocking reagents prevents non-specific binding of your antibody of interest and background staining by blocking reactive epitopes and endogenous proteins. Ready-to-use blocking reagents are available for use in a variety of immunoassays like western blot or immunohistochemistry. We also offer a full range of substrates to use with your enzyme-conjugated secondary antibodies.

CELL CAPTURE IMAGING REAGENTS

If your workflows include low cell count samples or rare cells, such as CTCs, stem cells, or cells infected with viruses, then our Cell Capture Imaging Reagents (CCIR) will provide you better results. They provide a single vial solution to the extreme cell loss encountered in standard Immunocytochemistry (ICC), Immunofluorescence (IF), and cytospin protocols. The CCIR allows antibodies and other needed imaging reagents to pass through a permeable hydrogel thin film. Offers mechanical strength to withstand routine pipetting. The cells treated with CCIR can then be imaged through a single centrifugation step in any standard, unmodified microtiter plate.

ANTIBODY CONJUGATION AND LABELING KITS: AVIDIN, STREPTAVIDIN & BIOTIN CONJUGATES

The strong affinity interaction between avidin family glycoproteins and biotin can be a useful way to amplify signal detection. The avidin-biotin system has been used in immunohistology, immunocytology, immunoblotting, and ELISA.

When used in conjunction with a biotinylated secondary antibody, the complexes formed between biotin and conjugated avidin can increase sensitivity. Explore our offering of fluorophore, enzymes, and other labeling conjugates.


Visikol® Tissue Clearing Solutions, Kits and Protocols

Visikol® HISTO™ and HISTO-M™ tissue clearing reagents and kits offer an easy-to-use technique to clarify bioimaging in a way that is compatible with your immunolabeling applications and easily reversible.

Visikol® Tissue Clearing Method Features and Benefits include:

  • A solvent-based approach
  • Fast and less damaging to tissues
  • Reversible to allow validation against traditional histology

For 3D cell models, where thickness and opacity can make it difficult for light to penetrate, HISTO-M™ presents an immunofluorescence-compatible solution for complete 3D cell culture model characterization and more accurate drug screening.

IMMUNOGLOBULIN CONTROLS, HUMAN SERUM CONTROLS, AND BOVINE SERUM ALBUMIN

Normal sera and purified immunoglobulin proteins can be used as blocking agents or as positive and negative controls in many immunoassay applications. Explore our offering of immunoglobulin proteins, human and mouse serum controls, bovine serum albumin and more commonly used species and antibody isotypes.

ANTIBODY PURIFICATION METHOD, PROTOCOL, AND KITS

Are you trying to generate an antibody in your laboratory?
Successful antibody production depends upon utilizing quality reagents at each important steps. We have everything you need to cover your workflow from inoculation to purification. Adjuvants and carrier proteins can improve immune response on the front end while our Protein A/G/L resins, adsorption resins, and antibody-agarose products address your purification needs.
