Loading Control Antibodies

Thermo Scientific Pierce Loading Control Antibodies include antibodies against the most common loading and expression control proteins. Loading Control Antibodies are essential in the proper assessment of Western blots and are used to compare the amount of protein loaded in each well across the gel. These controls help determine whether sample-to-sample expression level differences of the protein of interest are due to actual protein levels in a given cell lysate or from loading variance in sample preparations. Pierce Loading Control Antibodies can also be used as a complementary antibody stain in immunofluorescence studies with your protein of interest. We now offer a our loading control antibodies to GAPDH, Beta Actin, and Beta Tubulin conjugated to Biotin, HRP, and our DyLight Dyes.
