Since 1995, Aves Labs has been the research community’s premier source of chicken antibodies.
The company started with a science problem.
Founded by Dr. Gary Ciment, Professor Emeritus of Cell Biology at Oregon Health & Sciences University, Dr. Ciment was having trouble finding competent and reliable companies that made polyclonal antibodies on a custom basis. After failing to make an antibody against a highly-conserved mammalian gene product using rabbits, Dr. Ciment tried chickens as a potential alternative host. The results were remarkable: the human protein antigen was highly immunogenic, there were extraordinarily large yields of antibody, and the immunoreagents demonstrated tight binding with high specificity.
25+ years later, Aves Labs continues to support researchers - like theirfounder - with a broad range of custom services offered, leveraging our scientific expertise and long history to provide innovative solutions to help customers tackle complex problems from research and development through production. They are exceptionally proud of the work we do to help scientists get results, featuring these results periodically on our news and blog feed.
In addition to custom services, Aves Labs has developed novel antibody reagents against neural-specific antigens and epitope tags to foster scientific progress in neuroscience and the molecular biology communities. Our neuronal, glial, and schwann cell markers and epitope tag antibodies are ideal for performing Western Blots, ELISAs, Immunoprecipitation, and Immunohistochemistry (IHC) or Immunocytochemistry (ICC), and are ideal for being used in tandem with your existing mouse and rabbit antibodies for double immunostaining procedures.
Their products are widely used worldwide including:
- Their Anti-GFP, one of the most popular antibodies globally with thousands of research citations
- A broad collection of Neuronal Cell Markers, including:
