Allele Biotech Orbigen merge

Integration of Orbigen Products

Allele Biotech has been marketing products previously offered by Orbigen since July of 2008. In the process, Allele Biotech has transferred the majority of the Orbigen products to its own product lines, and left out a few that were no longer in demand, under proper license, or in some cases replaced with newer and better versions.

The biggest class of Orbigen products now under the Allele Biotech brand name are the polyclonal antibodies such as anti-EDG1 EDG2… EDG8 (catalogue numbers: PABs 10626, 10619, 10628, 10630, 10496, 1063), anti-BMRPs (catalogue numbers: PABs 10536, 10537, 10538). Other popular polyclonal antibodies from Orbigen include PAB-10983, PAB-10216, PAB-10683, PAB-11651, PAB-11141, PAB-10241, PAB-10469, PAB-10778, PAB-11248, PAB-11665, PAB-10563, PAB-10774. Orbigen antibodies have been tested in hundreds to thousands of labs over more than ten years.

One key product group developed by Orbigen is the baculovirus system, which includes the viral Sapphire genomic DNA and pOrb transfer vector plasmid for efficient packaging. We have further developed the pOrb vector into a bicistronic vector for dual expression or mammalian infections.

Retrovirus packaging cells, on the other hand, have been obtained from non-Orbigen sources and are now called Phoenix 2 as products under a new product line, the Gryphon retrovirus system. These cells have similar functions but were built by different researchers and further selected at Allele Biotech. Like all packaging cells we have experience with, these cells do not attach well after a freeze/thaw cycle. It is absolutely essential to wash away DMSO and better seed them in high quality, attachment enhancing dishes such as our EcoCulture plates.

Products previously under the Orbigen brand name are now included in Allele Biotech’s brand new shopcart (now beta-testing at We hope the new functionalities at the new site combined with the relevant knowledge and information you used to enjoy at our current site will provide you with an improved shopping experience.
