Immunodetection

Winning Westerns Webinar

Perhaps more than any other step in Western blotting, immunodetection conditions are subject to the greatest number of variables, in part because this step depends on antibody:antigen recognition. Our scientists know how tedious it can be to optimize immunodetection parameters; that’s why we developed the vacuum-driven SNAP i.d.® Protein Detection System, cutting the time for blocking, probing, and washing to 30 minutes.
