Roundtable Discussion on Antibody Validation

Antibody Validation Roundtable: Specificity + Sensitivity + Reproducibility = Validation 

Ab-Validation-Blog-Banner.jpg

Concerns about the use of incorrectly or insufficiently characterized antibodies in biomedical research have been raised by recent reports of nonreproducible research studies. Non-reproducible research studies have resulted in loss of time, resources, and scientific reputation, with publication retractions occurring in certain cases.

 

This webinar will highlight how antibody specificity affects reproducibility in biomedical research and will introduce viewers to the key requirements for proper antibody validation. Panelists representing  academics, industry, and publishing will share their views and unique perspectives. This forum is intended to serve as a step along the path toward building consensus on best practices for antibody validation and reporting antibody-based data in research manuscripts.
