A new U.Va. resource is connecting academic, industry and clinical investigators with important tools to further their research. U.Va. Innovation’s new research reagent directory features more than 100 available antibodies, mouse strains and other tools developed by U.Va. researchers.
Reagents are used in all phases of life-science research, from basic science to translational research and human health products. These ubiquitous little guys can be used in a variety of ways — such as identifying the presence or location of a protein or other indicator in a sample — making them useful tools in studying cell behavior, diagnostics and many other areas.
We could go on and on about research reagents, but maybe you should just see for yourself.
