Tenders are invited for Rft For The Supply And Delivery Of A Western Blot Scanner/Imagera Technologically Advanced Western Blot Detection System That Can Detect All Protein Bands (Total Protein) On Criterion Stain-Free Gels And Blots And Antibodies In The Near-Infrared Spectrum Between 680-800Nm.
Long-held misperceptions--call them "myths"--surround these steps and hinder researchers' ability to use western blots as a meaningful tool for the quantification of relative protein expression levels.
Although Southern and Northern blots illustrate important principles about nucleic acid chemistry and hybridization, they are very difficult to describe in lecture: it is an elaborate process to separate nucleic acid molecules by size, move the nucleic acid from gel to blot, radioactively label a probe, hybridize the probe to a target sequence on the blot, and detect the hybridized probe by exposure of the blot to x-ray film.
It is the first completely automated protein analysis without the use of gels, transfer tanks, blots, imaging and manual analysis.
This new platform combines highly-sensitive quantitative detection of multicolor fluorescent Western blots with key ease-of-use features aimed at simplifying the laboratory imaging process.
That the invention of Western blotting was not blindingly intuitive to someone like me, who was performing Southern and Northern blots (1, 2) on a regular basis, perhaps seems incomprehensible now, but struggle I did.
Recently, there has been a trend towards the application of fluorescence-based detection of proteins on western blots.
It can detect both chemiluminescent and fluorescent Western blots, providing quantitative accurate results.
