Meet the European Malaria Reagent Repository

At CiteAb we aim to create a community for those who work with antibodies. Every now and then we feature individual company or organisation highlights here on our blog, allowing you to get to know others in the antibody community too.

This week we have been speaking to the European Malaria Reagent Repository based at the University of Edinburgh.

The Repository was set up in 2012 by Dr David Cavanagh and his colleagues, with the aim of providing malaria research reagents to academic and commercial laboratories, ultimately enhancing malarial research.

Building on Edinburgh’s collection of parasite clones accumulated over the past forty years, The European Malaria Reagent Repository has grown to become one of the largest and most diverse banks of malaria parasite-specific reagents.  By holding reagents in a repository, Dr Cavanagh and his team are securing the future of reagents allowing their use across a global research community.

Currently funded by the Wellcome Trust, the repository operates on a cost-recovery basis with reagents available to any “bona fide” researcher. You can find out more about the Repository and how to order reagents at The European Malaria Reagent Repository’s newly launched website, or check out their listings on CiteAb.

We are always looking for new companies and academics to share their antibody data with us, so if you have antibodies that are not listed on CiteAb do get in touch.
