Creative ways to get my hands antibodies - ...for free (Feb/20/2006 )
For instance, now I am into Reproductive Endocrinology. I only able to purchase radioimmunoassay kit to measure hormone level. I want to investigate Leydig cells and beta-cells of pituitary as candidates to study the mechanism of my substance and I cannot do anything. I am dreaming to be able to get primary antibodies towards those organs, then I can do something but.. oh well..
Don't worry. I am also in a very poor lab .
Many experiments I want to do...but I can't...
I am now sick of it and I have decided to find my own money to do it ( either scholarship or student loan).
I, too, am in a new V.V.P.L. (very, very poor lab) . One thing I try when I need a sample of some reagent or antibody is to go to Pubmed and see if anyone in my university or the neighbouring universities has done similar work. Sometimes, if you know who to ask, you might be able to get a bit of something.
If you publish a paper using vectors from Santa Cruz, you are still entitled to a complimentary antibody. The criteria is: any published paper citing the use of any Santa Cruz product--and you receive a complimentary primary antibody!
If you wish to recieve another product in lieu of the complimentary antibody, please contact us directly, we will be happy to work with you!
We can be reached at email@example.com and 1-800-457-3801 ext. 2.
good opportunity to ask you: what is the equivalent of 1 Cruz Credit? how to calculate with Cruz Credits?
How could I publish a paper of research with Santa Cruz product if I dunno how to get it What if we reverse the situation, Santa Cruz gives us the primary antibody (for free) we need, then we can work with it, with finally we publish our paper? Of course a research proposal must be sent to Santa Cruz for them thinking that we deserve the antibody or not. I already have some proposal but I just don't have money to get the primary antibody. I have all things but that thing
Hi Miss L,
You may try to pm "Immuno06" and discuss about your situation, as he works in the Technical service of Santa Cruz Biotechnology.
I did but I got no reply yet
