Novus Biologicals releases two new posters to guide antibody research

Novus revealed two new posters at the ISSCR 8th Annual Meeting this week – a fluorescent labels poster and a stem cell signaling pathway poster.

The fluorescent labels poster displays all fluorophores that Novus offers conjugated to their primary antibodies. The stem cell signaling pathway poster provides a detailed visual tool for understanding how stem cell proteins interact in this complex pathway. Both posters are 18 x 24 inches in size and fold in quadrants for ease of handling.

Fluorescent labels are useful tools for antibody detection and research. Researchers attach fluorophores to a protein or antibody of interest, which allows it to fluoresce in order to be detected by techniques such as FACS/flow cytometry, Western Blot analysis, and other immunoassays. Novus offers many pre-labeled antibodies as well as Lightning-Link Antibody Labeling Kits for quick and easy antibody conjugation. Novus’ Fluorescent Labels poster vividly describes various fluorophores, depicting their absorption and emission wavelengths with their corresponding visual color upon scanning.

Stem cell signaling is a complex and multifaceted pathway that controls stem cell maintenance and differentiation. Novus’s Stem Cell Signaling poster presents the proteins and receptors involved in these pathways in a comprehensive and easy-to-follow diagram. Initial signaling is broken up into four main signaling cascades: Notch signaling, Hedgehog Signaling, Wnt Signaling, and BMP/Activin/Nodal Signaling. Arrows direct the pathway from signal reception outside of the cell to signal transduction processes within various organelles within the cell. The poster displays many of Novus’s top antibodies that impact the stem signaling pathway, including: Sonic Hedgehog, beta Catenin, Jagged1, CK1, and CD44.

These posters are ideal reference tools for fluorescent labeling and stem cell research. To request one or both of these posters by mail, please contact Novus Biologicals by calling 303-730-1950 or via e-mail at
