BitesizeBio.com has published a new article entitled How to Choose Quality Antibodies for Successful Western Blotting, which sheds light on the most important aspects of how antibodies can affect the output of western blots. Bioscientists, and other interested individuals can view the full article at the BitesizeBio website.
The article includes several interesting pieces of information, one in particular is that reduced versus non-reduced samples might require different antibodies. This should be of particular interest to bioscientists because many people think that all antibodies can work for any application.
One of the most important piece of information the article tries to convey is that the quality of the antibody is extremely important to getting good, reproducible results. The best example of this is perhaps found in the following extract:
‘Successful western blotting means achieving unambiguous results, and this requires a sensitive and specific antibody-antigen interaction. Consequently, high quality antibodies are critical for reliable and consistent western blotting.’
In discussing the article’s creation, Dr. Amanda Welch, Editorial Manager at BitesizeBio.com said, “I hope that everyone understands how antibody quality affects their research. You must have high quality and validated antibodies.”
