Western Blot – News and Features


Overcoming Western Blot Reproducibility Problems: Tips for Producing More Accurate and Reliable Data

This article outlines key workflow steps to help researchers perform better western blots. By executing best practices in these steps – sample preparation, gel electrophoresis, gel transfer, protein detection, and image analysis – researchers can expect good western blot data.

Host Cell Protein Analysis in Biopharma

Presence of host cell protein (HCP) contaminants in the final product, even at very low levels, may elicit unpredictable and serious immunogenic response in humans. The accurate detection, identification and quantification of HCPs during biotherapeutic development is thus critical in ensuring patient safety, and is a regulatory requirement.

The New Normalization in Western Blotting

A western blot is supposed to give you information on true experimental conditions or differences between samples. It is instrumental for the detection of proteins in research discovery and biopharma. In this article, we will be explaining the two main western blotting normalization methods; the older housekeeping protein method and the newer TPN method.
