Antibodies Learning Center

Learn about antibody methods and technologies

Invitrogen primary and secondary antibodies represent a large and ever-improving portfolio of products designed to help researchers identify, locate, measure, and purify proteins and other biomolecules. Selecting individual antibody products from among hundreds of options can be a challenge. The Antibodies Learning Center contains educational material designed to empower researchers and technicians with the background knowledge about antibody technologies necessary to develop, select, and/or use antibodies to advance their research.

Antibodies guided learning

Antibody Validation* eLearning Course

This modular, animated, and narrated eLearning course was developed to provide a succinct, contextual summary of the Invitrogen antibody validation* and methods for verifying the specificity and functionality of antibodies used for research applications. There are knowledge checks throughout the course to test what you have learned.

*The use or any variation of the word “validation” refers only to research use antibodies that were subject to functional testing to confirm that the antibody can be used with the research techniques indicated. It does not ensure that the product(s) was validated for clinical or diagnostic uses.
