Accurate, Consistent & Reproducible Western Blot Data

Know how to get your Western blot data published

Western Blot publication guidelines are changing......and your Western Blot analysis needs to change with it.

Journals like Science, Nature, Cell, and the Journal of Biological Chemistry are changing minimum content requirements and adopting rigorous Western Blot publishing guidelines since Western Blot reproducibility is a well-discussed topic in research.

Reviewers and editors want to know details about:

  • study design,
  • combined linear detection ranges,
  • data normalization,
  • controls and replicate Western Blot samples,
  • and reproducibility of Western Blot results

How can we help you get your Western Blot data published and funded?

To secure publication and funding, you need accurate, consistent and reproducible Western Blot data. Minimize error and variation in your Western blot data and eliminate the variability of multiple film exposures: upgrade the darkroom to digital Western blot detection and get enhanced, consistent and reliable chemiluminescence (ECL) Western blot results with one digital scan.

Go even further and also eliminate the unstability of the enzymatic ECL reaction, in which the signal intensity is constantly changing. Near-InfraRed (NIR) imaging uses NIR fluorescent signals that are stable and reproducible over time, ensuring you with accurate and reproducible Western Blot data anytime you want: now and later.
