This is a brand new award which recognises Abcam as the company with the largest percentage of antibodies in our current listings with supplier knockout validations.
One of the most accepted and trusted validation processes for antibody specificity is knockout validation, a robust technique to confirm specificity by testing the antibody of interest in a knockout cell line or tissue that does not express the target protein.
Our judges gave this award to Abcam based on our full CiteAb antibody data listings, highlighting the company as having carried out the most Knockout Validations for its antibodies.
Dr Andrew Chalmers said: “Here at CiteAb we talk regularly about the progress being made in the field of antibody validation, so this year we wanted to recognise suppliers who are making excellent use of knockout validation technology while also celebrating adding validation information to our listing. Congratulations to the team at Abcam for winning this very meaningful award.”
