"I was actually surprised on how uncomplicated the validation took place.After contact, everything went quick and it was a pleasure to do this validation, especially with the benefit at the end (free antibody).We will for sure do this again if we need another antibody that was not tested before."
Sabine Schneider, Institute of Physiology, University of Bern
"My experience of the antibodies-online independent validation initiative has been entirely favourable. I was invited to participate after I received a prompt reply to a technical query I had submitted. Based on this information, I was able to optimise the conditions for my application of their antibody and I obtained much improved results. The data I uploaded for the validation report were generated in experiments done as part of an existing project without influence or interference from the company in any way. It was a simple process to negotiate a refund and antibodies-online offer flexible options for this, including credit for different antibodies of equivalent value from their catalogue. I would recommend the independent validation initiative and I would be happy to participate again in the future."
David J Barnes, Institute of Musculoskeletal Sciences, Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences, University of Oxford
"It has been a very nice experience for us too!
I will certainly keep in mind to contribute more validation project proposals related to our work in the future for our research needs."

"We strongly recommend using antibodies-online validation program since it is not only a feedback for customers but for manufacturers also. Very responsive, user-friendly service and procedure."
Matthias Klose, Institut für Medizinische Mikrobiologie, Virologie und Hygiene, Universitätsklinikum Hamburg-Eppendorf
"Within the antibodies-online validation program I tested nine antibodies, from which two did not recognize their target proteins. Choosing the right positive controls, I received a refund for all of them. I also would like to emphasize that the data published on the webpage is coming directly from the scientist. Overall it was a very positive experience and I have no doubt that I will participate in this program again, if I need an antibody that has not been tested yet."
Veronika Neubrand, Departamento de Bioligía Celular e Inmunología, Instituto de Parasitología y Biomedicina "López-Neyra", Granada
"Having now concluded several validations I can confirm that the process is truly independent. Refunding takes place quickly and uncomplicated. We anticipate to provide further validations in the future."
