Guide to antibodies and research reproducibility

Join Dr Harvinder Virk and Dr Nikki Osborne for this FREE ‘Guide to choosing and using antibodies to improve the reproducibility of research’ webinar.

During this session Harvinder (Clinical Researcher, University of Leicester & Only Good Antibodies co-leader) raises awareness of the impact that antibody selection can have on the reproducibility of research before introducing the Only Good Antibodies (OGA) community and forum. He also answers questions about how to identify, validate and/or select antibodies in research.

During this webinar you will learn about:

  • efforts to improve the accessibility and use of validated antibodies,

    * western blotting
    * immunostaining (IF/ ICC)
    * immunohistochemistry
    * general principals for other applications
  •  the Only Good Antibodies (OGA) community and forum,
  • how you can contribute to change to improve antibody use and the research culture,
  • freely available sources of further information and useful resources.

You will also have access to download session handouts including a PDF copy of the slideset.
