Santa Cruz West cliff
Half Dome

I am currently a technical representative for Santa Cruz Biotechnology, Inc where I communicate with researchers coordinating chemical, immunoglobulin, & RNAi experiments with SCBT reagents and labware.

Research time & bench labor is a valuable effort. Having confidence in reagent quality & all elements of procedures is essential to success in molecular/cell biology. I improve the frequency of successful experimental results for my clients through 2-way communication; the means to obtain, test, provide feedback, and receive follow-up support brings success.

Several nuances and variables in molecular/cell protocols determine how a result turns out; apparent & straight-forward procedures (ie immuno (western) blotting) contain an extraordinary amount of important steps. Below are a collection of links to resources for research antibody and RNAi studies, that will improve awareness & success for bench scientists.
