Are You Working with Limited Sample?

Do traditional immunoassays use too much of your precious sample? Do you need to pool samples to run your experiment? Do you want more data points per experiment? Our Simple Western systems maximize the data you get per experiment.

Simple Western™ (Wes) can help you. He only needs 3 µL of sample per data point. Imagine all the data you can get from your sample!

Get More Data


  • 3 µL of sample per capillary
  • 13 or 25 samples per run
  • Results in 3 hours

"We collect samples from laser microdissection and were using our entire sample on just one regular Western blot. With Wes, we can do multiple assays with one sample collection."

With Wes you only need 1-10 μL of laser microdissection (LCM) sample for each data point, so you’ll get more data points for each sample you collect. Read our application note to learn how Simple Western changed what two research groups could do with their precious LCM samples.

Simple Western Assays on Wes

"Wes required less sample than the traditional western blot and less technician/ assay time, while achieving high sensitivity and good reproducibility"

Simple Western Limited Sample Article

Read the paper to learn more about how researchers use Wes to quantitative protein expression, the ratio of phosphorylated to total protein, and the fold change in expression following treatment using human adipose tissue from a needle biopsy. And they do it using a much smaller amount of tissue than traditional approaches require!
