Our laboratories have been in Pennsylvania for over fifty-five years. Our collaborators work in the premier research institutions and companies around the world.  Our antibodies have been put to conceivable usetested and characterized again and again.

Rockland makes antibodies everyday — polyclonal, monoclonal, VHH single domain, primary, secondary, pre-adsorbed, conjugated, affinity purified, F(c), F(ab’)2 and Fab fragments. It’s our passion. Proudly, Rockland is the pioneer and leading expert in secondary antibodies. Diversity, specificity, stability, consistency, and reliability are the hallmarks of Rockland secondary antibodies. The work horse in every assay, our secondary antibodies detect, control, block, enrich, visualize, neutralize, precipitate, and discover.

Our staff agrees that your experiments are of the utmost importance, and that’s why our products do not leave our facility until they pass our rigorous barrage of quality control tests. Our scientists validate the performance of antibodies by assays commonly used by most researchers including ELISA, western blotting and immunohistochemistry. Some companies rely on you, the scientist, to perform their quality control testing! Not so at Rockland. Because we produce our own antiserum at our animal facilities and purify and test each antibody in our laboratories, we can guarantee the quality of every product we make. Furthermore, each product line is multi-assay validated to ensure uncompromised research conditions.

Rockland adheres to QSR / cGMP quality standards (CFR:21H part 820) with full reporting and traceability.  We perform rigorous quality control testing procedures for everything that leaves our facility, whether it is a catalog product or a custom produced solution.  These tests include Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), Western BlotImmunofluorescence microscopy, frozen section Immunohistochemistry, paraffin embed formalin fixed Immunohistochemistry, High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC), antibody conjugation and fragmentation, bioburden assays, and both one dimensional and two dimensional (1D and 2D) sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE).

Rockland products are guaranteed to give predictable, repeatable results. We are one of the most referenced companies in the industry and continue to collaborate to develop products such as isoform specific AKT antibodiesGFP and RFP antibodies, and fluorochrome conjugated secondary antibodies validated by the most demanding assays.

Rockland is an internationally acclaimed manufacturer and trusted partner. We take pride in our products and stand as the leader in antibody innovation.

With over 6,000 products, we offer the most comprehensive selection of antibodies available. By creating our antibodies in-house, our products are guaranteed to give predictable, repeatable results. Protect your experiments with Rockland antibodies. Compromise elsewhere.

Primary Antibodies

Primary antibodies are developed to specifically detect a particular antigen of interest.

Secondary Antibodies

Secondary antibodies bind to the primary antibody to assist in detection, sorting and purification of target antigens.

GFP & Tag Antibodies

Rockland offers a variety of antibodies to be used as markers of protein localization, purification of recombinant proteins, tag detection and signal amplification.

Proteins and Peptides

Peptides are small polymers of amino acid monomers that are bonded together and distinguished from proteins by their size (typically containing fewer than 50 monomer units). Peptides allow the development of antibodies of a very specific region of a protein without the need to purify the protein of interest. They also allow for the identification of proteins of interest based on peptide masses and sequence. Typically, peptides are used in clinical research to examine the inhibition of cancer proteins and other diseases.

Kits and Epitope Tags

Rockland kits contain an assortment of required antibodies (primary antibodies, secondary antibodies, or types of conjugated antibodies for specific detection), substrates, and any other required component for a specific experiment.
