FluorChem Imagers

Narendra Sees More in His Immunoblots with the FluorChem Q Imager

"The FluorChem Q gives me clean and publication-quality results. This has helped me enormously to do accurate protein analysis which is very critical for preclinical validation of drugs."

iCE

Joan Kicks Her Method Development into High Gear with iCE3

"The short run times and easy sample preparation allowed for method development within a day or two. The versatility of the instrument allows the possibility of offering clients rapid alternatives to traditional ID and charge heterogeneity assays."

MFI

Stephanie Gets the Whole Stability Profile of Therapeutic Molecules During Formulation Development with MFI

"MFI technology has allowed us to better understand what conditions promote stability of our therapeutic molecules, which ensures that only world-class medicines are delivered to patients."

Amber Raises the Bar on Product Quality with MFI

"We’re able to do extended analysis with images provided by MFI and then bridge this data with other techniques to identify and rapidly classify particles in solution. This helps our clients understand their products better and ensure they are providing the highest quality product to their patients."

Yuhwa's Biosimilars Analysis is a Slam-dunk with MFI + Bot1

"As a biosimilar company, we investigate whether our products are similar to reference material, and use the MFI to perform comparability and stability. We must test samples from a variety of sources... for all these samples, we chose the automated MFI with Bot1 because a manual-only system just wouldn't have enough throughput."

Simple Plex

Aleks Speeds Up the Transition of Pediatric Sepsis Biomarkers from Validation to the Clinic with Ella

"Ella allows us to rapidly quantify biomarkers from hundreds of cryopreserved samples and correlate them to specific outcomes. Now we’re ready to validate that what we identified in frozen plasma samples correlates to fresh blood samples taken at the point-of-care. Ella’s simplicity and reproducibility will allow us to reliably test samples across different sites, enhancing triage especially in remote locations of developing countries where access to trained healthcare professionals is unlikely."

Paulomi Fast-tracks Detection of Viral Responses During Pregnancy with Ella

"Simple Plex assays on Ella gave us speed and efficiency so we could complete our assays quickly, and the high quality of the data meant that we could easily see differences between disease state samples and controls. Plus, sample preparation was so simple it reduced chances of errors significantly."

Simple Western

Jane Gets Fast Answers for Cancer Research with Wes

"Wes is easy to use, convenient, and gives answers quickly. The throughput and system automation is a definite advantage."

Melyssa Speeds Up the Core with Wes

"We’ve been able to increase productivity dramatically with Wes. The results are much better too, given that it removes the blotting step all together."

Kazuya Takes on Far-Western Blotting to Detect Protein Phosphorylation with Wes

"The no-gel, no-transfer, no-membrane features are beneficial for the reproducibility of the assay. I really like this system over traditional Western."

Emma Gets to Better Outcomes for Osteoarthritis Patients with Wes

"Wes gives me more throughput so I can get more replicates and trust my results a little bit more, and I can trust them straight away rather than having to do a lot of repeats. And obviously I like getting results the same day rather than having to wait two days"

Mary Makes More Links Between Obesity and Cancer with NanoPro 1000

"The Simple Western Charge assay, a capillary isoelectric focusing immunoassay, exceeded the reliability of 2D Western blots for resolving recombinant PKG-Iα and PKG-Iβ and uses 100,000X less sample quantity, making it well-suited for clinical disease proteomics because protein isoforms and post-translational modifications can be detected in precious tissue biopsies."

Jamie Keeps Things Greener with Wes

"The traditional blotting method can use up to 300 pieces of plastic and Wes uses two. What's even better is that Wes can run up to 40 proteins in three days. It would take about a week to run 40 proteins using Western blotting."

Brian Cuts Time to Results and Solves His Membrane Protein Challenges wth Wes

"We had been trying to study receptor proteins with traditional Westerns but it was frustrating—we just could not get it. A few months with Wes and we've already had way more success than we had in three years."

Miranda Sets a New Pace for Alzheimer's Research with Wes

"The rapid, reproducible results on small amounts of tissue/cell lysates have allowed me to generate a more thorough data set on additional proteins, samples, conditions and brain regions all in the same amount, or even less time, as traditional Western blot. This technology has made it possible for small research labs to compete with the pace that research is conducted in large labs or companies."

Mary Ups Her Data Point Count on Laser Capture Microdissection Samples with Wes

"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."

Noelle Changes Her Brain Receptor Research Game with Wes

"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."

Single-Cell Western

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

"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."
