“Rockland. A name synonymous with reliability, specificity, and sensitivity.”

Established in 1962, Rockland Immunochemicals Inc. is a global biotechnology company manufacturing leading edge research tools for basic, applied and clinical research in functional genomics, gene therapy and drug discovery markets. Rockland is a privately held company which operates a manufacturing facility with antibody and protein production capabilities located near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Rockland reputation is based on attention to detail, customer service and continuous investment in the tools and technologies required to develop a world-class product line. We understand and appreciate how the products are helping solve significant global problems in life science research. We take great care to validate our products before they reach any research laboratory. Every lot of every product is quality-control tested to a rigorous standard and application-tested for consistent performance.

The Rockland Advantage

Rockland agrees that your experiments are of the utmost importance, and that’s why the products do not leave the facility until they pass the rigorous barrage of quality control tests. Rockland scientists validate the performance of antibodies by assays commonly used by most researchers including ELISA, western blotting and immunohistochemistry. Some companies actually rely on you, the scientist, to perform their quality control testing! Not so at Rockland. Because Rockland produces their own antiserum, at the animal facilities, and purify and test each antibody in the laboratories. 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.  Rockland performs rigorous quality control testing procedures for everything that leaves the facility, whether it is a catalog product or a custom produced solution.  These tests include Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), Western Blot, Immunofluorescence 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. Rockland is one of the most referenced companies in the industry and continues to collaborate to develop products such as isoform-specific AKT antibodies, GFP- and RFP-antibodies, and fluorochrome-conjugated secondary antibodies validated by the most demanding assays.
