Toxicology Related Antibodies

Toxicology Overview


Toxicology can be defined as the study of adverse effects of chemical and physical substances in living organisms. Toxicology plays a critical role in the process of drug development, determining potential adverse drug reactions during preclinical and clinical studies and also in post-marketing studies evaluating the risk–benefit ratio of approved medicines. Toxicity studies of drug candidates are commonly based on the detection, measurement and evaluation of protein biomarkers.



Antibodies and Immunoassays for Toxicology


Rockland Immunochemicals catalog portfolio includes exclusive monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies that bind to biomarkers crucial for toxicology research needs in the areas of cell signaling, cellular metabolism, epigenetics, immunology and inflammation, neuroscience, cardiovascular and cancer drug discovery.


Additional toxicology immunoassay kits offered by Rockland include CellCountEZ®, OxPhosTM, RadDoseTM and the Intracellular ThiolEZTM assays, well established technologies developed by LIMR Development, Inc. (LDI), the business subsidiary of Lankenau Institute for Medical Research (LIMR).   

Rockland’s cell viability assaysand BrdU detection antibodies are ideal for determination of proliferation, cell cycle, or cell survival, based on a total cell population. Cell viability assesses healthy cells in a sample, with no distinction between dividing or quiescent cells. An increase in cell viability indicates cell growth, while a decrease in viability can generally be interpreted as the result of either toxic effects of compounds/agents or suboptimal culture conditions.
