Webinar series: Simple steps to publication-quality western blots

Presented by: Jordan Thompson, Caleb Shearrow, and Kelli Feather-Henigan
Event date: Oct 12-14, 2021 | One session per day

Western blot analysis is a method widely used in the lab today because of its versatility in detecting and measuring specific target proteins in a sample. However, in recent years the reproducibility and quality of western blotting data has been increasingly scrutinized. Publications have developed more stringent review guidelines for western blot data, based on recommendations arising from a 2014 meeting organized by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the journals Science and Nature. Our team of western blotting experts have put together this 3-part webinar series that is designed to help you avoid some of the pitfalls associated with western blotting and enable you to achieve publication-quality western blot results. This webinar series will share tips and provide step-by-step guidance on how to improve the quality and reproducibility of data for both qualitative and quantitative western blotting, with attention on some of the newer guidelines.

Protein gel electrophoresis

Importance of sample preparation and choosing the right gel for SDS-PAGE

This webinar will discuss the importance of sample preparation in SDS-PAGE electrophoresis and how to choose the right gel chemistry for specific research application.

Choosing the right protein gel for your research application

This webinar will highlight the different protein modifications occurring during electrophoresis, the importance of pH in sample integrity, how to choose the right gel chemistry for specific research applications and how to introduce the right new gel chemistry in your research workflow.

Detecting low abundant proteins in a western blot: Overcoming challenges for improved signal-to-noise of low expressing and precious sample targets

Detection of low-abundance proteins and/or detection of proteins from limited volume samples can be a major challenge when performing western blotting. In this webinar, we will discuss specific methods from sample preparation through immunodetection that can help overcome challenges and improve signal-to-noise of low-abundance proteins for more successful western blot detection.

Western blotting

A novel method for quantitative western blotting that eliminates errors from the use of housekeeping proteins

In this webinar, we present data and analysis demonstrating the ease of use and improved accuracy and reproducibility of quantitative western blot data with No-Stain Protein Labeling Reagent compared to housekeeping proteins.
