: Check out the latest promega catalog.!
Alas, Promega seems to have jumped the gun on advertising that
antibody. I was really excited about it and called them to order it only
to be told that it was unavailable. Worse yet, they could give me no
estimate on the time when it would be available and advised me to check
back with them in a month (I phoned last week). Very frustrating, as I
had already thought of quite a few interesting experiments. This is the
second time Promega has done this with me also. These folks do not seem
to have their act together in terms of advertising new products only when
they are in fact ready to deliver on them! I do hope that they will
eventually have this antibody for sale, but I'm not holding my breath on it.
