Antibodies are among the most widely used affinity reagents to detect or isolate specific molecules. The quality of biomedical research and its findings are highly affected by the quality of the reagents used in the experimental settings. 

Our scientists in the Antibody Characterization Laboratory characterize reagent specificity and performance in alignment with the National Institutes of Health’s Rigor and Reproducibility Principles and Guidelines. 

Standard operating procedures for each characterized antibody are available to download from the National Cancer Institute's Antibody Portal

Access the Antibody Portal

The Antibody Characterization Laboratory performs antibody validation as part of a community resource overseen by the National Cancer Institute Office of Cancer Clinical Proteomics Research. You may access the data standards and reference materials online and filter by your criteria. You can browse by antibody or reagent.
