Complete Solutions for Your Neuroscience Tissue Analysis Needs

Analyzing complex neural tissue often presents researchers with unique challenges such as low analyte levels, numerous potential interfering factors, and limited sample volume. We recognize that you need to get the most out of your neural samples and that you expect a lot from the analytical approach you choose. Our combined decades of experience have produced both scientific gold standards and market-leading innovations to support your detection and analysis goals, and at unprecedented speeds.

Western Blot

Tools for Effective Western Blot Experiments

Western blot is an essential protein analytical technique routinely used in neuroscience research. Bio-Techne brings together antibodies, loading controls, ECL detection reagents, imaging systems and analysis software to make planning your Western blot experiments easier.

Stop Pooling Mice to Get Western Blot Data: Market Leading Western Blot Sensitivity

No need to pool samples like mouse nervous tissue. Simple Western™ offers pg-level sensitivity and only requires 3 microliters of sample. Significantly save costs and mouse lives while getting single-animal statistical data. To get the most data out of precious nerve cells, Simple Western also eliminates the arduous strip and re-probe procedure by offering RePlex™, which efficiently removes the antibodies from the first round of probing for a second round of probing with fresh antibodies. The second round may also be used for Total Protein Detection, so you can normalize your data with confidence.

Single-Cell Analysis

Identify and Quantify Neural Cell Subtypes with Single-Cell Westerns

Single-cell protein expression information is often critical to understanding the composition and behavior of complex biological samples. Milo™ is the world's first Single-Cell Western platform, allowing you to identify and quantify the percentage of nerve cell subtypes in your sample and track differentiation of neural progenitor cells based on subtype-specific marker expression analysis. Analyze approximately 1,000 single cells at a time and detect up to 12 protein targets per cell using a variety of multiplex strategies.
