SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Scientist.com, the marketplace for outsourced research, and antibodies-online.com, the marketplace for research reagents, announced today the launch of the Antibody and Protein Product Hub, a one-stop-shop for off-the-shelf antibodies, ELISA kits, proteins and related reagents. Scientist.com marketplace users can now purchase from the world’s largest catalog of high-quality antibodies, ELISA kits, proteins and related reagents.
“Researchers want to find antibodies that work; they want to get them in an ‘amazon-like’ shopping experience; and they want antibody experts that support them all the way," said Tim Hiddemann, PhD, Managing Director and Co-Founder of antibodies-online.com. “We are very excited to partner with Scientist.com as researchers can now access and purchase custom research services and off-the-shelf research reagents in one place.”
Antibodies are a key tool in drug discovery research due to their high specificity and affinity and because they are amenable to rapid protein engineering. Antibodies have been engineered for use in a broad range of assays that quantitate, localize or modulate the activity of drug targets. With millions of antibodies now available, it has become difficult for researchers to find the right antibody for their drug project.
“Antibodies are the experimental work horses of life science research, playing an important role in almost all medical research breakthroughs,” said Romila Mukerjea, PhD, Scientist.com Antibody Director. “This partnership with antibodies-online.com creates a one-stop-shop of over 2 million antibodies with associated product data (supplier-provided, literature-based and crowd-sourced) and direct access to antibody experts in the US and Europe.”
