Increase Your Knowledge: Learn how BioLegend helps you stretch your neuro-dollar further.
|Know what you’re working with|
|Reproducibility is the cornerstone of science. Using a consistent amount of antibody from experiment to experiment is crucial to ensure the reproducibility of your data. BioLegend offers three sizing options: microgram, microliter, and test sizes. Understanding the differences between the formats can help you decide which format will best suit your needs. Microgram sizing is perhaps the best way to know exactly how much antibody you are buying, and is often the best value. Similarly, microliter sizes are sold at a set volume with the concentration clearly stated on the TDS. Both the microgram and microliter sizing options are best suited for optimizing titration, and allow for consistent antibody usage across experiments. They also make it easier to calculate how much isotype control to use. Test sizes are offered as a convenience, where the titering has already been done for you. Test size antibodies are meant to be used at a set volume (typically 5 μL/test).

|Technical and biological replicates ensure sound and reproducible results, but come at the cost of increased reagent usage. BioLegend offers competitive pricing on our neuroscience products, so you get more replicates and more data. Check out the table below to see how you can get more value in your vial when buying the same antibody clone from BioLegend and a few of our competitors. For ease of comparison, we converted the size of those products sold in a 100 μL format (marked with an asterisk) to total μg per vial based on their concentration of 1 mg/mL.

One Product, Multiple Applications
|Here at BioLegend, we quality test and validate our products across a wide range of applications. Many of our reagents pull double, triple, or quadruple duty, meaning you can perform more assays with the same reagent. These applications are listed on the TDS so you know what your shiny new antibody can do.|
|Purified anti-Tubulin β 3 (TUBB3) Clone TUJ1
|Particular application not listed? Even if we don’t test a clone for a particular assay in-house, our dedicated team of technical support scientists scour the literature for other possible applications for our clones so you don’t have to.
