Browse our broad primary antibody portfolio - 200,000 antibodies and growing.
We offer a large portfolio of high-quality Invitrogen primary antibodies that bind target proteins or other relevant antigens specifically and sensitively. These antibodies are useful across various applications including western blot, immunohistochemistry, ELISA, and immunocytochemistry. We offer significant choices for each target; recombinant or traditional monoclonal antibodies, polyclonal antibodies, and various host options such as rabbit, mouse, goat, rat, or chicken. With greater than 90% coverage of the human proteome, find the antibody that meets your needs.
Commitment to antibody specificity and reproducibility
Antibodies are some of the most critical research reagents used in the lab. Poor specificity or application performance can significantly hinder your ability to obtain good results, which can cause critical delays.
Thermo Fisher Scientific is working to redefine antibody performance standards with a comprehensive approach to how antibodies are evaluated and validated.* Specificity testing is combined with extensive application validation data to provide confidence that our high-quality Invitrogen antibodies will help enable superior performance in your research.
Standard antibody validation
Testing to help ensure the antibody works in a particular application(s) of interest, which may include, but are not limited to:
- Western blotting
- ICC and IF
- Flow cytometry
Testing to help ensure the antibody specifically binds the correct target in the application(s) of interest, which may include:
- Independent antibody validation
- Cell treatment
- Relative expression
- Peptide array
- SNAP-ChIP® validation
- Immunoprecipitation-mass spectrometry (IP-MS)
Spotlight—Thermo Fisher is the leading antibody supplier offering the most antibodies with advanced specificity validation.*
According to a 2022 analysis of supplier antibody validation by CiteAb, Thermo Fisher leads the industry with over 11,000 antibodies with enhanced specificity validation.
Antibody specificity validation remains a top concern for researchers and at Thermo Fisher, antibody reproducibility is something we take seriously. In addition to our high standards for manufacturing, we are working to validate these critical research reagents across multiple applications. We believe it is critical to show specificity beyond just a single method, such as CRISPR gene knockouts in western blotting. Over time, we have implemented multiple specificity tests so that researchers can trust our antibodies in relevant applications.

You can easily identify antibodies that have already undergone this additional testing with the Advanced Verification badge. This badge can be found in antibody search results and on appropriate antibody product webpages. The additional data supporting the Advanced Verification status can be found in the product specific data image galleries.
Epitope tag antibodies provide a method to localize gene products in a variety of cell types. We offer a wide selection of primary antibodies specific to epitope and affinity tags, fluorescent dyes, and fusion proteins.
