Hi, May I know the difference between ab97037 & ab6563? Can either one be used for western blots? Thank you for your help.
Asked on Nov 18 2011
Thank you very much for your interest in our antibodies. The difference between these two secondary antibodies it that ab6563 is pre-adsorbed against 10 species (chicken, cow, goat, guinea pig, hamster, horse, human, rabbit, rat, sheep), while ab97037 is pre-adsorbed against only 8 species (chicken, cow, goat, horse, human, rabbit, rat, sheep). It will depend on your lysate, which one would be better suited. If you are using a human cell line for example ab6563 would be better suited. Although we have not tested these antibodies, we believe they would work and could be used in Western blot, provided you have the appropriate equipment for the detection of Cy dyes. Please do not hesitate to contact us or the manufacturer of your detection system for more information. Given this, I can offer a discount off a future purchase if you buy ab6563 or ab97037 now, test it in Western blot and submit feedback to us. It doesn’t matter whether the feedback is positive or negative, we would just really like to receive your feedback. The discount would be to the value of 1 free secondary antibody. If you are interested in this offer, please follow these steps: 1. Reply to this e-mail to let me know that you would like to proceed and test ab6563 or ab97037 in Western blot. I will then send a discount code. This code must be issued before purchasing ab so please wait for my reply before ordering. 2. Purchase ab6563 or ab97037 either by phone, fax, or online (www.abcam.com). 3. Test it in Western blot. 4. Let us know the results, positive or negative, preferably via an email to email@example.com (images are great if you have them!) similar to our Abreview system (which can be found here: https://www.abcam.com/abreviews.) 5. After the feedback is submitted to us, the discount code becomes active. Simply place your new order by phone, fax, or on the web and mention the discount code. The discount can be redeemed for any secondary antibody ordered and the discount code is valid for 4 months after issue. We are always pleased to obtain feedback about our products and any information is greatly appreciated! Even if the antibody turns out to be unsuitable for Western blot, you will still receive the discount on your next purchase after your feedback has been submitted. Please let me know if you have any questions about this offer and I would be happy to help you further. Otherwise, if you are not interested sharing your results, i.e. in the above mentioned testing discount, please let me know and I could arrange for a discount when you place the order.
