1. What is your timeline for developing an antibody?
Development takes approximately 3-4 months from the day the Purchase Order is received.
2. What is the affinity of your antibodies?
All our antibodies can detect picogram levels of their target in Western Blot.
3. Do I have to pay to get an antibody developed?
No, our antibody development service is completely free. You will only pay the price for purchasing the antibody, USD$475 for 100µl volume.
4. Why is your antibody development service free of charge?
Part of our mission is to develop an antibody to every protein used in research. We'd like to start with the proteins of immediate interest to researchers, to collaborate with them early and to tackle the reproducibility problem together. Once an antibody is developed, its recombinant source allows a forever reproducible supply. This allows us to capitialise on our initial efforts over time.
5. Do you also provide unconjugated antibodies?
Unfortunately not. All our antibodies come conjugated with their detection signal. Part of our vision is to remove the need for secondary antibodies to allow for better reproducible research, less cross-reactivity, and multiplexing ability in the same tube.
6. What main information do you need from us when placing an antibody development request?
We need:
  • Name of the target or its accession number.
  • The species that the customer is interested in.
  • The intended application the antibody will be used in.
7. What do we need to do to request antibodies for development?
Once we have received the information in Q6, we will send you an official quotation and development can start when a purchase order or credit card payment has been received.
8. My protein target is not a popular mouse or human target, can you still accept a request?
Yes, we can develop an antibody to any target of any species, as long as it's a protein target.
9. Can you develop antibodies against post-translational modifications?
Unfortunately, not for the moment.
10. Do you develop antibodies against lipids, fats or carbohydrates?
Unfortunately not, currently we are only taking in requests for protein targets.
11. Is there a limit to the number of antibodies we can request to be developed?
There is no limit, A customer can ask us to develop several antibodies in one single request and give several requests in any given year.
12. If I request an antibody to be developed, can you withhold it from other customers until I publish my data with it?
Unfortunately, we cannot. After we finish developing an antibody, it enters our catalogue and can be purchased by anyone interested.
13. Who owns the Intellectual Property of the antibody after the development?
Tresars would own 100% of all the Intellectual Property.
14. What applications are you currently focused on?
Currently, we can only develop antibodies intended to be used in WB, IHC, ICC, IF or FC.
