Defining the New Normal in Quantitative Western Blot Data

Normalization of western blot data is very crucial in quantitating proteins. Normalization of band intensity of proteins of interest with the band intensity of housekeeping proteins (HKP) is routinely done in labs. But more and more journals question the validity of using HKPs in normalization and are demanding more validations and tests. An alternative method is to use total protein normalization (TPN) for normalization. Explore the TPN option and see how you can get reliable western blot data easily.

Multiplex Cytokine Immunoassays — Minimizing Effort, Maximizing Results

Since the first cytokine was identified over 60 years ago, a lot has been done to better understand these molecules. The use of multiplex immunoassays is one such way, though they aren’t considered quite as mainstream yet. Learn about how the SMARTS approach can be used to better align user experience to the performance characteristics of these multiplex assays and hopefully transition them to a more mainstream role in research.
