The Thermo Scientific Restore Fluorescent Western Blot Stripping Buffer is a gentle and highly effective reagent for quickly removing primary and near-infrared (IR) dye-labeled secondary antibodies from western blots.
Features of Restore Fluorescent Western Blot Stripping Buffer:
• Fast—strip blots in only 15 minutes at room temperature
• Saves time—no need to run new gels and prepare a new blot
• Conserve samples—reprobe the same PVDF membrane for multiple targets
• Economical—less expensive than other commercially available stripping buffers
• Efficient—effectively strips blots the first time
Restore Fluorescent Western Blot Stripping Buffer enables the reuse of PVDF membranes, simplifying the Western blot optimization process and allowing the same blot to be reprobed with different primary antibodies to detect alternative targets. Restore Fluorescent Western Blot Stripping Buffer is for use with low-fluorescence PVDF membrane only (Part No. 22860).
Fluorescence Western blotting is a powerful method for detecting multiple targets at once. Restore Fluorescent Western Blot Stripping Buffer allows re-probing of PVDF membranes, saving time and cost. This is ideal when samples are limited and optimization or analysis with different primary antibodies is required.
Traditional stripping methods may adversely alter or remove the sample proteins from the PVDF membrane during the stripping process or may be effective for removing only low-affinity antibodies. In contrast, Restore Fluorescent Western Blot Stripping Buffer Stripping efficiency exceeds 90% while reprobing efficiency matches or exceeds other supplier's formulations. Also, Restore Fluorescent Western Blot Stripping Buffer is conveniently stored at room temperature and easy to use. Simply dilute buffer 1:5 in water and incubate your membrane for 5 to 20 minutes at room temperature.
