Addressing the antibody reproducibility crisis: A panel discussion with key scientific leaders
Every year, millions of dollars are wasted on poorly characterized and performing antibodies. During this panel forum, key researchers in the antibody community came together to address this reproducibility crisis. They discussed the development of validation* testing standards to ensure proper characterization and consistency for antibodies in the laboratory (This panel originally took place May 30, 2017).
* 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. For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
