Free epitope tag antibodies and 15 % off until end of the year

Epitope tag antibodies are the most frequently used antibodies in research. If an antibody specific to the protein under investigation is not available, one can instead use its recombinant version, and use an antibody specific to its fusion partner to achieve detection. 

Agrisera offers hundreds of epitope tag antibodies, both polyclonal and monoclonal, discounted by 15% until end of 2023. 

We are constatly developing new epitope tag antibodies, and currently we are offering the following antibodies free of charge, in return for results:

Ble tag | Cas9 | CBD-Tag | CBP-tag | E Tag | Glu-Glu Tag | Halo Tag | HSV epitope tag | KT3 epitope tag | mStrawberry | Rho1D4/1D4 Tag | S epitope tag | SNAP/Clip Tag | tdTomato | Trx Tag

Check out the full list of antibodies available for testing here.

Joanna shared her extensive knowledge and vast exprience of 20+ years of using this widely employed protein analysis technique.

The workshop consisted of two parts, including a 10 minute break for the Agrisera Antibody and Western blot Quizzes and coffee. Questions submitted by attendees were answered, and many pitfalls of the Western blot technique were discussed, based on specific experimental examples.

Participants also had a chance to win Agrisera high titer secondary antibody and 2 ECL reagents, in quizzes with questions about antibodies and the Western blot technique.

Each participant of the workshop received a pdf of the presentation with links to additional information as well as the recording of the workshop for the future use.
