Thank you for contacting Abcam.

Because we carry over 100,000 products, it isn't feasible for us to keep small sample sizes of our products.

To our knowledge, ab88672 has not been tested in baboon. However, the human DGKA protein sequence has 99% homology with the baboon DGKA sequence so the antibody should be able to recognize baboon DGKA. By participating in our AbTrial program you can now use our products in an untested application or species without financial risk.

Simply follow these easy steps below to apply for our AbTrial Program:

1. Reply to this email, letting us know you are interested in testing this product.

2. Our scientists will email you an inactive personal discount code for the value of the product.

3. Purchase and test the product at the regular price.

4. Submit your results, including your discount code in the additional notes section of your Abreview.

5. Once the Abreview is submitted, the discount code will become active.
