This biotech company is in the business of immuno-based assays: ELISAs, FACS, antibodies for Westerns. They don't have quite the inventory of antibodies for cell signaling as some of the other companies, but their products generally cost less than other vendors. Quality seems to be on par with other companies like BD. I've used one of their ELISA MAX kits and was very impressed with the sensitivity. Tech support has been prompt and courteous. Also they are also competing like mad. You can request free samples of antibodies to try for your application. They are also negotiating discounts with non-profit research organizations. Not the 1% or 3% discount if you order ridiculous quantities of product like some companies are offering, but substantial meaningful discounts if you get your department or institute on board.
