How the program works


Is your antibody qualified for the Innovators Program?

Contact a Technical Support Scientist (1-800-874-3723 inside the U.S. or +1-815-968-0747 outside the U.S.) or email us at to determine if your antibody qualifies. You will need to provide the product number of the antibody and the type of experiment you're planning to perform with it.

If your antibody qualifies, follow the instructions below to submit your results (a high-quality image and a brief description of the image, test application and results), and then we will contact you to issue your reward. You can repeat the process as many times as you like with images of distinct applications.

How to submit your data

To submit your data for the product credit, please complete the submission form and submit the following information.

  • Your name and institution (will be kept confidential and only used as set forth in the Official Rules)
  • A minimum 400 dpi resolution image in .jpeg, .tif, or .png format of any of the following applications: western blotting, immunohistochemistry (IHC), immunocytochemistry (ICC), immunofluorescence (IF), fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS), enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), immunoprecipitation (IP), or chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP).
  • A 200-word or less description of the image and application being provided. Please include cell type/tissue, target protein, primary and secondary dilution, blocking agent and detection method, where applicable.
  • Acknowledgement of the receipt, understanding and acceptance of the Official Rules.

Thermo Fisher Scientific receives the right to review the data quality prior to granting a product credit. This offer is valid on only selected antibody products and only within 6 months after your antibody order. If you are unsure if the antibody you have purchased applies, please contact us for confirmation as noted above.

Controls Required: Proper experimental evaluation of trial antibodies should include all necessary controls (positive, negative, loading) and any previous supporting data generated by the testing lab. For example, if demonstrating knock-out or knock-down of a particular protein target please provide supporting data (RT-PCR, siRNA, northern blot analysis) illustrating that the test model system harbors a true knock-out or knock-down of the target protein. All western blotting experiments' loading control data should also be provided. For IHC evaluation please include data for both normal and experimental/disease state tissues.
