  • Translating Traditional Western Blots to Simple Western is Fast and Easy

    Simple Western

    Using Simple Western has been extremely rewarding, especially due to how easy it was to transfer our western blotting assays to a fully automated format on Simple Western and how well CST antibodies perform on the platform.

  • Advancing Cell and Gene Therapies with Jess

    Simple Western

    Simple Western™ allows us to run three-hour assays, which would usually take us two days with traditional Western blots.

  • 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

  • Accelerate Osteoarthritis Research Studies with Simple Western

    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.

  • Measuring Immune Response to Predict Changes in Autoimmune Disease Activity

    Simple Plex

    We needed assays that were not only excellent at conserving our limited sample volumes but would allow us to test a lot of markers quickly and efficiently. The Luminex and Simple Plex assays proved to be the ideal choice in this case, giving us a level of accuracy and reproducibility that we’ve been unable to get with other platforms.

  • Improving Trauma Outcomes with Fast, Efficient Brain Injury Biomarker Analysis

    Luminex Instrumentation

    We were fortunate to be able to test these Luminex porcine panels early in our research effort. Once we could see the measurements we were getting on the plates, we knew we had found what we were looking for. The panels ended up making a huge difference in the outcome of the study.

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

    Single-Cell 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

    Single-Cell 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

    Single-Cell 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.
