Western blotting, also known as immunoblotting or protein blotting, is a core technique in cell and molecular biology. In most basic terms, it is used to detect the presence of a specific protein in a complex mixture extracted from cells or tissue.
Our introduction to western blotting guide provides in depth, step by step information on this ubiquitous technique. Also available is our Western Blot Doctor™, a self-help guide to identify and troubleshoot western blotting problems.
Multiplexing fluorescent western blotting enables multiple proteins to be detected and quantified in a single sample with highly specific and sensitive fluorescent antibodies. Thereby enabling direct protein abundance comparisons and normalization against a control, for instance a housekeeping gene, which is more accurate, easier and time saving as you will no longer have to strip and re-probe. It also preserves your precious sample too.
