Labome: The Gateway to the Perfect Antibody -- Labome Antibody Review Database Has Now Reached 10,000 Peer-Reviewed Formal Publications

Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) September 12, 2013

Antibodies are an essential part of the laboratory toolkit, but their quality and applicability are highly variable. Identifying the best antibody for an experiment is critical for maximizing the chances of getting good results first time round, saving both time and money. But deciding which antibody to use on important samples can be tough. The most appropriate antibody depends on a host of factors including the type of tissue and the tissue preparation method, the sample species, the abundance of the target protein, the type of experiment, and much else besides.

With an ever increasing number of antibodies available, choosing among them usually means poring over product data sheets from dozens of suppliers, or spending hours trawling the literature in the hope that someone somewhere has published the details a researcher needs.

Fortunately, there is now a better solution. Since 2006, Labome has been systematically collating information on thousands of antibodies — raised against proteins from actin to ZAP — from more than 10,000 published peer-reviewed articles. These 10,000+ articles are selected at random, thus popular antibodies from reliable suppliers are reviewed more often, and users can instantly determine which antibodies have worked well for the greatest number of laboratories.

With the world's largest independent antibody review database, Labome allows users to search for a protein, and then compare the antibodies available from almost all high quality suppliers, including large, small, and non-profit suppliers. Labome antibody reviews and direct links to the published articles in these review webpages allow viewers to see at a glance who has used a given antibody and how well things turned out.

The next time a researcher needs an antibody for protein X, he/she can search 'X antibody review’ rather than ‘X antibody' in any search engines. Such a search will often lead to the Labome antibody review webpage about protein X. That one extra word 'review' during search will take the guesswork out of antibody selection, saving time, money, and important tissue samples. A little time at Labome can save a lot of time in the lab.

About Labome

Since 2006, Labome has been manually curating information on antibodies, as well as other reagents and laboratory instruments, in a database that is freely available online. More than 10,000 peer-reviewed articles have been selected at random from the literature and reviewed, corresponding to more than 8,000 genes.

In partnership with about 100 high-quality suppliers, Labome also provides a single point-of-access for information on more than 2 million laboratory products, including antibodies, proteins and peptides, ELISA kits, chemicals, cDNA clones, siRNAs, and shRNA constructs.
