Assay Biotechnology Company, Inc. was founded in 2006 in California’s San Francisco Bay Area. We offer over 5,000 validated, pre-made antibodies that span a wide range of cellular pathways, featuring over 1,000 phospho-specific antibodies. In addition to providing a vast inventory of fine research primary polyclonal antibodies, Assay Biotechnology is striving to produce all human genome wide antibodies and antibodies against all published regulatory phosphorylation sites by 2015.
At Assay Biotechnology, our dedicated research and development and production teams synthesize each of our antibodies using synthetic peptide immunogens. This allows our quality to be closely monitored while giving us the power to target particular protein regions and isoforms in our antibody design. Our quality peptide design is the key to generating specific, selective, and reproducible antibodies.
In addition to our quality-conscious production process, each of our antibodies undergoes vigorous quality control testing and validation before being included in our catalog. First, they are purified by affinity chromatography using epitope-specific immunogens. Each antibody is then validated using a combination of Western blot (WB), direct enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), immunohistochemistry (IHC), immunocytochemistry (ICC), and immunofluorescence (IF). A successful antibody will be blocked by immunogen peptide, quality-tested by two independent groups, and validated in two or more applications before being included in our product line. All validation steps are carried out using whole cell lysates and paraffin-embedded tissue, never over-expressed or pure protein. Combining our expertise in antibody production and rigorous quality control testing has allowed us to produce high-quality, high-specificity phosphospecific antibodies. These unique antibodies give researchers the power to explore cellular regulatory events including signal transduction, enzyme receptor activation, phosphorylation-modulated transcription, and cell signaling events.
In addition to our selection of phospho-specific antibodies, we offer isoform and modification-specific antibodies, including acetyl-specific and cleavage-specific antibodies. Our full range of products includes antibodies against ion channels, transmembrane proteins, and receptors, featuring a wide array of G-Protein Coupled Receptor (GPCR) antibodies.
Furthermore, we are confident in our quality and ensure reliable antibody performance; any antibody that does not meet the performance standards indicated on the product datasheet will be replaced free of charge. We guarantee our regularly-priced products 100% for the treatment concentrations and application in the organism(s) stated in product datasheets. With technical support approval, any item that does not meet the standards detailed in the datasheet may be returned for store credit or refund within 30 days of purchase.
In our first five years as a company, we manufactured many high quality, high specificity antibodies exclusively for OEM partners, and our products are now available directly to researchers. We are actively expanding our line of antibodies and are excited to provide you with high-quality, specific, and selective antibodies to move your discoveries forward.
