  • Restoring Autophagy, Reversing Disease with Jess

    Simple Western

    Jess allows us to immediately identify potential autophagy biomarkers as they are upregulated or downregulated in response to treatment. This allows us to use more advanced statistical techniques such as principal component analysis and hierarchal clustering to recognize key correlations in our research with ease

  • Utilize Simple Westerns for Protein Analysis of Osteoarthritis Patient Samples

    Simple Western

    The introduction of an Abby will enable us to answer important questions quicker, such as identifying the disease driving mechanism and molecules surrounding osteoarthritis. Moving away from the tedious manual western blotting process, which can take up to two days, and introducing automation will speed up time to data and provide increased sensitivity and accuracy.

  • Utilizing Simple Western to Understand Neuronal Markers in Schizophrenia

    Simple Western

    "It can be difficult to optimize new antibodies, particularly for brain markers where you have a lot of background noise and low levels of your target. The appropriate control and low variability between plates using Simple Western™ means we can complete our studies in weeks rather than months."

  • Prashant Gets a Better Picture of Taxane Resistance at the Single-Cell Level with Milo

    Simple Western

    I was looking at two different isoforms of a protein, and it was important to know if the cells were expressing just one versus the other or both in a given cell. That was tricky until Milo came. We’re also getting more relevant information because Milo allows us to look at expression of this protein in tissue biopsies.

  • Dr. Zhong & Colleagues Understand Heterogeneity in Metastatic Cell Populations with Milo

    Simple Western

    Milo permits study of proteins at the single-cell level to understand the heterogeneity among metastatic cells within a population.

  • Guts and Glory: Validating a Neuroepithelial Circuit using Milo

    Simple Western

    We have been pairing Milo with single-cell real time qPCR data. We have the RNA and we know the transcripts are present. We used Milo to confirm our results and quantify the amount of protein that is in each individual cell."

  • Noelle Changes Her Brain Receptor Research Game with Wes

    Simple Western

    One of the best advantages of using Wes is that it saves a lot of time, both in terms of hands-on time and in time to completion of the experiment. We were spending more than 4 hours of hands-on time per Western blot with traditional methods, and we can set up a run on the Wes in about 45 minutes. Our Wes runs are completed in less than 4 hours, as opposed to 4 days with traditional methods.

  • Mary Ups Her Data Point Count on Laser Capture Microdissection Samples with Wes

    Simple Western

    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.

  • Miranda Sets a New Pace for Alzheimer's Research with Wes

    Simple Western

    The rapid, reproducible results on small amounts of tissue/cell lysates have allowed me to generate a more thorough data set on additional proteins, samples, conditions and brain regions all in the same amount, or even less time, as traditional Western blot. This technology has made it possible for small research labs to compete with the pace that research is conducted in large labs or companies.

  • Brian Cuts Time to Results and Solves His Membrane Protein Challenges with Wes

    Simple Western

    We had been trying to study receptor proteins with traditional Westerns but it was frustrating—we just could not get it. A few months with Wes and we've already had way more success than we had in three years.

  • Jamie Keeps Things Greener with Simple Western

    Simple Western

    The traditional blotting method can use up to 300 pieces of plastic and [Simple Western] uses two. What's even better is that [Simple Western] can run up to 40 proteins in three days. It would take about a week to run 40 proteins using Western blotting.

  • Mary Makes More Links Between Obesity and Cancer with NanoPro 1000

    Simple Western

    The Simple Western Charge assay, a capillary isoelectric focusing immunoassay, exceeded the reliability of 2D Western blots for resolving recombinant PKG-Iα and PKG-Iβ and uses 100,000X less sample quantity, making it well-suited for clinical disease proteomics because protein isoforms and post-translational modifications can be detected in precious tissue biopsies."
