ABOUT US

LSBio provides high-quality antibodies, tissue arrays, and immunohistochemistry (IHC) data and services to researchers worldwide.

Founded in 1995 by Drs. Joseph Brown and Glenna Burmer, LSBio was established as a molecular pathology company with a focus on protein localization in diseased human tissues by IHC. Through the experience gained by executing thousands of IHC studies, and generating and testing many thousands of antibodies, LSBio has become a world leader in the antibody industry, with a reputation for excellence. LSBio has a catalog of 101,500 monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies to 16,500 targets. Antibodies are available for most species and all major research applications, such as immunoblotting, IHC, immunofluorescence, and fluorescence-activated cell sorting. Through extensive ongoing in-house testing, more than 6,300 of these antibodies have also been identified as exceptional IHC reagents, and given the IHC-plus™ brand. More than 500 tissue arrays are also available from LSBio, providing researchers with a cost-effective and time saving resource for researching protein localization and expression in all major normal human tissue types and cancers. For more than a decade researchers have been relying upon LSBio’s expertise to fulfill their molecular pathology outsourcing needs. LSBio’s services include: antibody production and characterization, custom IHC studies supported by a massive archival human tissue bank, tissue-cross reactivity screening, and standard histology procedures and pathology analysis. LSBio stands behind the quality of its products and services and offers unparalleled customer service and support. In the years to come, LSBio plans to continue expanding its catalog of high-quality proteomics products, with a focus on IHC-validated antibodies, providing its customers with excellent reagents, services, and support to accelerate their research.

LifeSpan's Tissue Resources
LifeSpan has established extensive tissue resources in order to support its contract research services and protein localization databases. These resources include a massive internal collection of over 2 million tissue specimens, normal and diseased tissue microarrays, and a network of commercial and academic partners that can fulfill custom tissue requests. To ensure availability of the most commonly requested tissues, LifeSpan has prioritized its tissue procurement efforts on the most prominent Therapeutic Area Tissues, such as CNS, metabolic disorders, and inflammatory disease. By combining these resources with expertise in pathology, tissue quality control, and immunohistochemistry, LifeSpan can provide full service localization profiling, without requiring the client to source difficult to obtain reagents.

LifeSpan's In-House Tissue Bank
With more than 2 million formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded samples, LifeSpan has one of the largest on-site collections of normal and diseased human tissues in the industry. This resource provides LifeSpan with the range of samples necessary to pinpoint gene expression specific to a given disease and stage. LifeSpan's tissue bank is comprised of tissues from all major organ systems, including samples representing more than 1,500 diagnostic categories. Specimens are in the form of both formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded specimens as well as fresh frozen. In addition to human tissues, LifeSpan has gathered a comprehensive collection of normal primate specimens, as well as other specimens from common animal models such as mouse, rat, and dog.

Therapeutic Area Tissues
By focusing our efforts on maintaining an inventory of major therapeutic area tissues, LifeSpan ensures its ability to quickly satisfy the needs of its drug discovery clients. For each therapeutic area, the following lists of commonly requested normal and diseased tissues have been defined. LifeSpan endeavors to maintain an inventory of these tissues, or has established relationships through which they can be obtained. These materials are available for inclusion in contract research studies but are not representative of the entire LifeSpan collection. Many other tissue types and diseases are also available from LifeSpan's vast tissue repository.
The LSBio Guarantee
