Analytical HPLC is a versatile method of separating and analyzing the components or solutes within complex chemical mixtures. In this part of our Tech Overview series, we look at the two stages of HPLC workflow, and the instrumentation making it possible.
We at The Science Advisory Board recognize that scientific customers can exhibit remarkable brand loyalty. When we explored the antibody market in 2012, our members explained they make research antibody purchases based on “previous experience with the brand” and “colleague/coworker’s recommendations” as the most important selections overall.
Due to their precise nature, research antibodies are essential laboratory tools. Hundreds of companies commercially supply research antibodies to locations worldwide. We at The Science Advisory Board found that many scientists use pre made antibodies, in addition to custom antibodies that they purchase, make in their lab, or share with colleagues for less common applications.
