Need Reliable Alternatives to Santa Cruz Antibodies?
Change Your Antibodies and Improve Your Results
GeneTex has been conducting side-by-side western blot studies comparing Santa Cruz antibodies to GeneTex reagents targeting the same proteins. Our goal is to assist you in identifying the most suitable GeneTex antibody to replace the Santa Cruz product you have been using.
Enter the Santa Cruz catalog number (with the dash, e.g., sc-14033) into the search box above to identify a similar GeneTex product for your target.
GeneTex is committed to the highest standards of product performance through our stringent quality control process. To meet this mission, we resolve to abide by the validation guidelines proposed by the International Working Group on Antibody Validation (IWGAV)1:
1. Genetic strategies
2. Orthogonal strategies
3. Independent antibody strategies
4. Tagged proteins
5. Immunocapture-Mass spectrometry
In parallel with these validation modalities, we have initiated our knockout/knockdown program
to confirm the specificity of more than 400 GeneTex antibodies. Our goal is to make our knockout/knockdown protocol a standard component of our validation procedure for new antibodies, and continue to assess other products already in our catalog. We are further expanding these quality-control efforts through side-by-side testing with comparable products from other antibody vendors or resources. Not only does this offer supportive evidence for the specificity of a given antibody, it also gives researchers the opportunity to evaluate the comparative performance of our products. While these types of comparative studies do not definitively establish antibody specificity, they do show whether the same band is detected by two different reagents. All of this effort is dedicated to our primary goal of building researcher confidence in our products.
