A Method for Greater Reliability in Western Blot Loading Controls: Stain-Free Total Protein Quantitation
Bio-Rad Laboratories

Reliable assessment of changes in target protein levels by western blot requires measurement of both the target and loading control proteins in the linear dynamic range. Stain-free technology is a novel method introduced by Bio-Rad to visualize and quantify proteins in gels and blots.
General V3 Western Blotting Protocol
Bio-Rad Laboratories

Western blotting is a very useful and widely adopted lab technique, but the traditional procedure can be long and tedious. Researchers can assess only whether a blot image is captured at the end of the long procedure and the quality of western blot data is sometimes challenged due to poor loading controls.
Determining the Appropriate Sample Load When Using a Stain-Free V3 Western Workflow™
Bio-Rad Laboratories

Traditional western blot workflows require an appropriate sample load to detect both target proteins and loading control proteins. The discrepancy between these quantities often leads to oversaturated protein bands, forcing researchers to sometimes run two duplicate gels or titrate down the antibody concentration in order to get quantitative results.
