Reproducibility in Research Science - Join the Discussion.


Posted by Carolyn P on Jun 28, 2017 3:00:00 AM

Lack of reproducibility in scientific studies has been a major topic of conversation lately. It's an important conversation for us to have, given the potential of this problem to affect how the research community views the published literature.  Many potential reasons for the problem exist, but CST is focused on the role vendors play in ensuring the reagents being used by the scientific community are properly validated

These are important issues that need to be addressed by the scientific community and we should all be part of the conversation . . .

Successful Immunofluorescence: The Importance of Validation


Posted by Ken B on Mar 1, 2017 3:00:00 AM

Part one of a four-part series on Immunofluorescence. Check out Experimental Controls and Fixation and Permeabilzation.

After months of hard work, your research has zeroed in on a hypothesis you can test with immunofluorescence (IF). But now you have to make a choice. How do you decide which antibody to use to get reliable IF results? How do you know if the images are accurately reporting the target's localization? We explore some considerations in this post.
