Webinar: Best Practices for Multiplex Western Blots

Webinar Summary

As scientists look to get more and more data from each precious sample, being able to multiplex and quantify multiple proteins in each sample is becoming increasingly important. Simple Western automated capillary immunoassay platforms offer several strategies for getting accurate multiplexed and normalized immunoassays including a new stripping & reprobing-replacement called RePlex.

In this webinar, best practices for designing multiplex western blots will be described that were obtained through numerous projects performed at We-Met functional biochemistry core facility at Inserm. In particular, we will present strategies for using RePlex to design multiplex western blots and to perform an immunoassay followed by a total protein assay in the same sample to get accurate, normalized quantification of target proteins.

 

Speakers:
Alexandre Lucas, PhD.

Institute of Metabolic and Cardiovascular Diseases - Inserm (I2MC)Toulouse, France

Alexandre Lucas is the founder and manager of a functional biochemistry platform at the Institute of Metabolic and Cardiovascular Diseases - Inserm (I2MC) in Toulouse, France. The services offered on this platform revolve around 3 main areas: the study of proteins by Simple Western, the discovery of biomarkers and metabolic phenotyping in living cells. Alexandre's PhD and background are oriented around the study of proteins and cardiac and metabolic cell signaling. He has worked in several institutes including EMBL (European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg), Inserm in Paris and since 2010 in Toulouse.
