In our experiment we are greatly satisfied with your kits. We were able to get clear and vivid pictures of MMP's and compare dots for different samples.

Stony Brook University (SUNY/Stony Brook Department of Ob/Gyn)
We have recently used the C-series array for the human MMPs on denatured protein isolated from skin extracts and it works great.
I like to emphasize that even though the kit recommends the use of non-denatured proteins using their supplied buffer, this worked fine for us, which a plus point to use this array.
The customer service and the scientific support team is excellent.
We will definitely use their products again.
