Hi there,

does anyone know a company where you can get a free (or inexpensive) sample aliquot of an antibody to test it before ordering ?

Any ideas/experiences appreciated !
Thanks.

find the company that sells your antibody of interest and ask them for an evaluation sample.

Actually, I already wrote to several companies which produce the AB I'm looking for and politely asked them just that, but so far all responses were negative. That's why I wondered if someone knew a company with the habit of giving out samples.

don't write. call them and speak with a person in customer service or talk to a sales rep when they visit (you may have to follow up in writing).

many companies, large and small, will give (small) samples for evaluation.

@mdfendko, bioforum: Thanks for your replies. I'll make sure to ask the next time a sales representative of one of the companies is around.....

Hi 

 

We've been prompting our free antibodies for evaluation scheme (PPS) for almost a year.

 

This is still open for UK researchers, but overseas customers need to pay shipping http://www.stjohnslabs.com/

http://www.stjohnsla...Partners-Scheme

 

The condition for free samples is evaluation data feedback.

 

Alternatively, you can purchase a sample size , i.e, 20ul antibody from our range  @ £30.00 plus £20.00 shipping for UK and £40.00 for overseas
