AnaSpec this week launched four phospho-specific anti-Tau antibodies.

In a statement, the company said that its collection of anti-Tau antibodies is now the industry's largest, consisting of 21 phospho-specific and 13 non-phospho-specific antibodies. The antibodies have been validated in dot blots and with immunohistochemistry.

Rabbit anti-phospho-Tau antibodies were raised against synthetic phosphopeptides and evaluated for specificity with ELISA and/or Western blot. Species reactivity includes human, mouse, and rat. Some antibodies have also shown reactivity with bovine, chicken, and zebrafish, the company said.
