Analyze Neural Samples

Complete Solutions for Your 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.

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.

When You Want More from Your Westerns

Sometimes, you need a more in-depth analysis of the proteins in your sample than what can be done with traditional Western blot. Bio-Techne’s ProteinSimple brand offers many solutions to your protein analysis problems. ProteinSimple Simple Western™ is the only gel-free, blot-free, hands-free capillary-based immunoassay platform that allows you to separate and analyze proteins by size or charge via an entirely automated protein separation and detection process.
