Antibody Company Question - (Feb/09/2010 )
I've been looking at papers to check for antibodies against creb binding protein. I've come across a paper from PNAS in 1997 that used an antibody from a company called Upstate Biotechnology. Because the paper used the antibody in similar cells to what I am using, I tried to check out the antibody, but when I googled the company name I got onto a site called bioportfolio and eventually found the link to the upstate biotechnology page, which just seems to be a search domain.
Just wondering if anyone has come across this company or used them in the past, or know if they have now merged with another company perhaps? I did do another quick search and came across the compay name in other papers, but just thought I would look for some second opinions.
Can you contact the authors of the paper?
And checked this webpage: http://www.labome.com/summary/Upstate-Biotechnology.html
If you google "Upstate Biotechnology" this is the first hit:

It might seem like Milipore has bought Upstate. I used some resins for IP from upstate some years ago, and from the logo seen here http://www.millipore.com/company/cp1/redirect-ab I think they are the same.
hope this helps.
Thanks, I had also seen the millipore link but wasn't sure if it was the same company, so I'm glad you recognise the logo. I'll have a look to see if I can find a suitable antibody on their website.
