  • 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.

  • Emma Gets to Better Outcomes for Osteoarthritis Patients with Wes

    Simple Western

    Wes gives me more throughput so I can get more replicates and trust my results a little bit more, and I can trust them straight away rather than having to do a lot of repeats. And obviously I like getting results the same day rather than having to wait two days

  • Far Western Blot With Simple Western To Detect Protein Phosphorylation

    Simple Western

    The no-gel, no-transfer, no-membrane features are beneficial for the reproducibility of the assay. I really like this system over traditional Western.

  • Melyssa Speeds Up the Core with Wes

    Simple Western

    We’ve been able to increase productivity dramatically with Wes. The results are much better too, given that it removes the blotting step all together.

  • Jane Gets Fast Answers for Cancer Research with Wes

    Simple Western

    Wes is easy to use, convenient, and gives answers quickly. The throughput and system automation is a definite advantage.

  • Detecting Low Abundance Proteins in Precious Pediatric Cancer Samples with Wes

    Simple Western

    Some of the proteins we wanted to detect are low in abundance and it’s really hard to get a good amount of protein for traditional Western blot. The low protein concentrations required by Wes makes it easier to save precious samples ensuring protein detection.

  • Lower Limit of Detection Advances Understanding of Metabolic Signaling in Human Muscle

    Simple Western

    Wes allows us to measure cell signaling proteins from a single muscle fiber segment by lowering our limit of detection nearly ~20-fold from Western blotting. It also allows for much more precise, reproducible, and faster results to be generated, in addition to far greater ease of operation, analysis, and waste disposal.

  • Quantifying Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase in Platelets

    Simple Western

    [Wes] Provides quantitative data, saves time and uses far less sample.

  • Wes Zips Through Pharmacodynamic Biomarker Discovery Projects at the University of Glasgow

    Simple Western

    I was able to screen various antibodies in a single run within half a day. This had previously taken weeks and months using traditional Western blotting methods
