Thermo Fisher to help re­searchers by pub­lish­ing an­ti­body data

BioSpectrum (Asia) - - Supplier News -

Thermo Fisher Sci­en­tific has signed an agree­ment with reagent in­tel­li­gence plat­form BenchSci to use its trade­marked ma­chine learn­ing to mine an­ti­body data pub­lished in peer-re­viewed sci­en­tific jour­nals and dis­play it along­side as­so­ci­ated ap­pli­ca­tion in­for­ma­tion on prod­uct-spe­cific web­pages. Thermo Fisher aims for this col­lab­o­ra­tion to help sci­en­tists make in­formed de­ci­sions about the op­ti­mal an­ti­bod­ies to use in ex­per­i­ments. An im­age gallery on the com­pany’s an­ti­body prod­uct pages will in­cor­po­rate data gen­er­ated by BenchSci’s plat­form so web­site visi­tors can view in­ter­nal prod­uct de­vel­op­ment data and peer-re­viewed jour­nals’ fig­ures, all in one lo­ca­tion. Ad­di­tional pub­lished fig­ures will be added over time. Crit­i­cal re­search de­lays can be caused by poor an­ti­body speci­ficity or ap­pli­ca­tion per­for­mance as these is­sues sig­nif­i­cantly hin­der the abil­ity to ob­tain good re­sults. Choos­ing the wrong an­ti­body or one that un­der­per­forms can re­sult in a lack of re­pro­ducibil­ity, wasted time and wasted re­sources, Thermo Fisher said in a news re­lease. There­fore, re­searchers need an­ti­bod­ies that bind to the right tar­get and work in their ap­pli­ca­tions ev­ery time.
