What's Available

Unlock the Full Potential of Your IHC Research with Epistem's Tailored Protocols and Extensive Antibody Panel

As experts in the field of IHC protocol development, we at Epistem pride ourselves on our flexible and open approach. We are well-versed in working with a diverse range of markers, from those that are well-established to those that are more obscure and lesser-known. Furthermore, we are happy to work with the client’s own antibodies, ensuring a truly tailored approach to each project. At Epistem, we understand the importance of accurate and reliable results, and we therefore take great care in sourcing and selecting the most appropriate antibodies for your chosen targets. We also have an extensive tissue bank that includes normal and diseased tissues, tumour xenografts, cell pellets and rodent tissues, from which we can source suitable positive control tissues to further enhance the reliability of our protocols. Our expertise extends beyond antibody selection, and we also have a deep understanding of well-placed negative and positive controls, as well as antigen retrieval techniques and detection methods. Using this knowledge, we are able to develop protocols for both chromogenic and immunofluorescence labelling, which can be fully validated to the level of stringency required for your particular project.

As an added bonus, Epistem also hosts the Ventana Discovery Ultra IHC automated platform, which is capable of producing high-quality results for both non-regulatory and regulatory studies. This platform allows us to fully standardise protocols and ensure that they are easily transferable from our lab to yours, providing complete lock down of the protocol and enhanced standardisation. We are proud to offer an extensive and growing panel of over 150 antibodies, all of which have fully optimised protocols for use on both human and rodent tissues. These protocols can be readily translated to your samples, or alternatively, we can work with you to translate your own working protocols to our lab. Ultimately, our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive service that is tailored to your specific needs, ensuring that you achieve the most accurate and reliable results possible.
