Jay Cosio, Cell Marque

The majority of the antibodies that are currently run in clinical labs have been around for quite a while. We also know that research is ongoing to uncover new information about cancer; so where has all the research led us? Many of the recent antibodies to hit the market do not have a completely novel utility, in fact a good number of them can be considered the second generation of testing. However, that is the where the benefit lies. Do you have some antibodies that are not as sensitive as you would prefer, what about some lacking specificity? This workshop is designed to inform the lab of some of the recent antibody developments and how they improve patient care.
