About pAbmAbs

This site is made to share antibody experiences – good and bad – with the scientific community.

In our lab, we spend a fortune each year on commercial research antibodies that do not work as promised in their data sheets. However at present, it is very difficult to extract such information from the published litterature since negative results are seldom published.

The site is independent and free from any commercial interests whatsoever.
