I am a Ph.D. student doing research on the effects of obesity on the placental development. Unfortunately the antibodies of interest have not been tested in the uterus/placenta. I am writing to see if your company would willing to give us a small sample of the anti-IL-8 catalog # ab7747 and anti MCP-1 catalog # ab7202 to do a test by immunohistochemistry on paraffin embedded samples of the rat uterus/placenta. I would be willing to share my results to help promote this product.

Thank you for contacting us. Because we carry over 70,000 products, it isn't feasible for us to keep small sample sizes of our products.
We are happy to reassure our customers that all of our products are covered by our Abpromise, which guarantees that the product will work in the applications and species specified on the datasheet, or we will offer a replacement, credit, or refund within 6 months of purchase.
If the product is to be used in an untested species or application, you may be eligible for our testing discount program if the antibody has not yet been purchased. Please contact our Scientific Support team by replying to this email prior to purchase for more information.
Otherwise, we like to encourage all of our customers to submit an Abreview via the online product datasheet. We always appreciate customer feedback, whether positive or negative, and we make all product information available to researchers. Plus, each Abreview earns Abpoints that can be used for discounts on future purchases or rewards such as Amazon.com gift certificates.
