Abcam can currently provide customers with custom blocking peptides for its RabMAb® range of rabbit monoclonal antibodies.
Immunizing or blocking peptides can be employed as controls to assess the specificity of antibodies in applications like western blot and immunohistochemistry.
Process for Ordering
- Customers can get in touch with Scientific Support with details of the antibody they wish to block. They can email or call Abcam, or select the “Question about a product” dropdown on the inquiries page
- In cases where Abcam does not hold stock of the peptide, Scientific Support will advise customers as to whether Abcam can custom synthesize the peptide
- Scientific Support will offer customers a quote and lead time*
*Due to the custom nature of these products, in numerous cases, the minimum quantity Abcam can offer is 1 mg. The cost and lead time will differ based on the complexity and length of the peptide. As a rough guide, a 10-amino acid blocking peptide will cost ~£146/mg and can be supplied in about 8–10 weeks.
