Western Blot Detection: Is Film or a Digital CCD Imager Better?


western blotWestern blotting, known also as immunoblotting or protein blotting, is a well-established and widely accepted form of protein detection and analysis. It is based on building an antibody:protein complex via specific binding of antibodies to proteins immobilized on a membrane and detecting the bound antibody with one of several detection methods.

Learn the benefits and drawbacks of using film or a CCD imager to detect the bound antibody in Western blotting in this blog post.
