Accelerating Science: How to cure the incurable with cell and gene therapy

Application Note: Why does size matter?
29 September 2023

In this application note, Bio-Techne introduces Simple Western, an advanced immunoassay platform that overcomes the limitations of traditional ELISA. Unlike ELISA, Simple Western employs capillary electrophoresis and adds the dimension of molecular weight to protein analysis, providing sensitive, accurate, and reproducible quantitative immunoassay read-outs. While ELISA offers a two-dimensional measurement of antibody binding, Simple Western adds a third dimension by simultaneously measuring antibody binding activity and providing molecular weight size information. This innovative approach enhances the depth and accuracy of protein analysis under varying experimental conditions.
