IRVINE, Calif., March 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- GeneTex, a leading manufacturer of antibodies, is pleased to announce the launching of a new line of antibodies optimized for bioimaging that specifically label various subcellular structures and cellular organelles.



Over the past decade, great improvements have been made in the field of bioimaging. A variety of technologies, including highly sensitive confocal microscopy, now allow scientists to observe subcellular structures and biological events with greater resolution. In order to generate the high quality images required for advanced cell biology research, demand for antibodies against various organelles and subcellular structures that are both highly sensitive and specific has significantly increased.

To address this growing need, GeneTex has developed a new line of subcellular and organelle marker antibodies that are highly specific to ribosomes, centrosomes, mitochondria (inner and outer membrane), the endoplasmic reticulum, the Golgi apparatus, kinetochores, lysosomes, microtubules/spindles, actin filaments, Cajal bodies, the nuclear envelope, the nucleolus and the nucleus. GeneTex is also introducing new markers for the cell surface, the cytoskeleton and cytoplasm. This new line of subcellular and organelle marker antibodies has been validated by high-resolution confocal microscopy and optimized for immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescent studies. These high quality antibodies can also be used for immunohistochemistry and western blotting.

"GeneTex's new line of organelle markers have been thoroughly validated to ensure target specificity and optimal signal intensity," says Dr. Yen-Ling Chen, Product Quality Manager at GeneTex. "We are very excited to offer these valuable bioimaging tools."
