Antibody Reproducibility Initiative

Novus recognizes the need for highly validated, high quality antibodies in the life sciences research. The research community faces ongoing concerns about data reproducibility and especially the validity of antibody-based assays. A recent article in Nature discusses the variable standards and performance of antibodies and antibody suppliers in the market. Novus is committed to addressing this problem and to helping our customers attain the best possible results with our products.

To that end, we actively seek high quality, highly validated products and provide support to ensure that our customers have the tools to properly validate their own assays. We are also collaborating with several global initiatives that help life science researchers choose antibodies with proven results. For technical support in validating your antibody based applications, visit technical support.
