How to get clear best-quality data in IP and WB protocols?

Immuno-precipitation & Western Blots often suffer from heavy  /light chain blotting, contamination, and ongoing interferences. This can prevent from obtaining biologically-relevant data in a given experimental model, especially when the target of interest has a size similar to the IgG molecules that may remain. Getting rid of these “artificial” bands can be tricky. In this post, you will discover the robustness of the TrueBlot® products when facing this issues.

One of the most popular tools bypassing these issues wihile increasing the sensitivity of the immuno-assays are TrueBlot® products.

TrueBlot® is a secondary antibody that enables unhindered detection of molecules. Its use is simple, as you only need to substitute your conventional HRP or fluorescent reagent with mouse, rabbit, goat or sheep TrueBlot® for unparalleled clarity in results and highly quality image.

Principle of the TrueBlot® detection system

TrueBlot® preferentially detects the native disulfide form of mouse, rabbit, goat, and sheep IgG. It is ideal for protocols involving immuno-blotting quantification of immuno-precipitated proteins and detection of target molecules.

TrueBlot® reduces interference with the ~55 kDa heavy and ~23 kDa light chains of the immuno-precipitating antibody in IP/immuno-blotting applications. The data thus obtained are even more explicit and make post-translational protein modifications (incl. phosphorylation) or protein-protein interactions easier.

TrueBlot® detection system and immuno-assays

TrueBlot® products are available for goat, mouse, rabbit and sheep primary antibodies. They allow the generation of publication-quality data and are compatible with:

  • Immuno-precipitation,
  • Western Blot and IP-WB applications.

Recently, these reagents have been successfully used in ELISA, IHC and IF!

TrueBlot® in brief…

  • Easy to Use – HRP-conjugated TrueBlot® anti-Ig simply replaces your regular HRP-conjugated secondary antibody
  • Accurate Target Detection – TrueBlot® preferentially detects native (non-denatured) Ig, ensuring you are only detecting your target protein
  • Ideal for studying post-translational protein modifications, or protein-protein interactions
