We would like to try ab403 in bovine samples
Asked on Oct 08 2012
Thank you for your telephone enquiry on Friday.
As discussed on the telephone, I am sorry that as far as we are aware, ab403 PSA antibody has never been tested with samples from cow. All tested species covered by the guarantee are stated on the online datasheets, and these are updated as soon as any new information is brought to our attention.
I wanted to check the alignment of the immunogen with the bovine sequence. However, I am sorry to confirm that regrettably I have been unable to find the bovine sequence in the protein database sites. I would appreciate if it is possible for you to send the bovine amino acid sequence and I will be happy to do an alignment for you so we can predict whether or not this antibody may wok on cow samples.
If the alignment is high (> 70%), we would be pleased to provide our testing discount program. This works as follows:
1. Reply to this e-mail to let me know that you would like to proceed and test ab403 in cow. I can then check the alignment. If the alignment is high, I can then send a discount code. This code must be issued before purchasing ab403 so please wait for my reply before ordering.
If we are able to provide a discount code you would then proceed as follows:
2. Purchase ab403 either by phone, fax, or online (https://www.abcam.com). This order is paid at full price.
3. Test the antibody in cow.
4. Let us know the results, positive or negative, using our Abreview system (this will take about 10 minutes and images are great if you have them!). To find out how to submit an Abreview, please visit: https://www.abcam.com/abreviews.
5. After the review 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 primary antibody ordered and the discount code is valid for 4 months after issue.
Please remember that submission of the Abreview is sufficient for the discount code to become active.
We are always pleased to obtain feedback about our products and any information is greatly appreciated! Even if ab403 turns out to be unsuitable for cow, you will still receive the discount on your next purchase after your Abreview has been submitted.
Please let me know if you have any questions about this offer and I would be happy to help you further.
The Terms and Conditions of this offer can be found at: www.abcam.com/collaborationdiscount.
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. Each Abreview earns Abpoints that can be used for discounts on future purchases or rewards such as Amazon.com gift certificates.
