Salem, NH, July 29, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- ALPCO has released a line of pancreatic antibodies in order to provide scientists with vital tools for advancing pancreatic cancer research. The new antibodies foster the differentiation and isolation of functionally distinct pancreatic cells through flow cytometry and immunohistochemistry applications.
indicate that as of 2012, pancreatic cancer caused an estimated 330,000 deaths globally. Current projections
show that pancreatic cancer will become the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. by the year 2030. The research community is in need of reliable tools to analyze and understand the molecular mechanisms of pancreatic cancer to combat its steadily increasing growth.
“ALPCO is addressing these issues by now providing well characterized antibodies that can be used to advance pancreatic research,” says ALPCO’s President, Sean Conley.
Advancements have been made in regards to identifying extracellular markers specific to pancreatic cell subtypes, consisting of monoclonal antibodies that recognize the surface of endocrine, alpha, duct and acinar cells.
