PrecisionAb Lab-Validated Antibodies for Western Blotting

PrecisionAb™ Lab-Validated Antibodies for Western Blotting

These antibodies are fully lab-validated using strict testing criteria to deliver superior performance in western blotting detection.


Western blotting, the transfer of proteins to a solid-phase membrane support followed by immunodetection, is a powerful and popular technique for the visualization and identification of proteins. Western blotting combines the resolution of gel electrophoresis with the specificity of immunoassays, allowing the identification and analysis of individual proteins in complex samples.

With over 25 years of western blotting expertise, Bio-Rad provides a wealth of information and products to help optimize and troubleshoot western blotting. This section taps into this expertise, providing an overview of western blotting methods and help with troubleshooting as well as information about products and solutions that will help you obtain the highest-quality western blotting data.

Western Blotting Technique

The western blotting workflow involves the  selection of appropriate methods, apparatus, membrane, buffer, and transfer conditions. This involves two phases: protein transfer to a membrane and detection of the membrane-immobilized protein. Once proteins are immobilized on a membrane, they are available for visualization, detection, and analysis.
