MSD GOLD Prototype Printing Service

For critical research or long-term studies that require lot-to-lot reproducibility, our MSD GOLD Prototype Printing Service includes additional characterization and quality assessment of antibodies prior to coating. This helps manage variability originating from changes in raw material that can occur from lot to lot due to degradation, aggregation, and changes in purification processes or polyclonal host.
