The Next Generation Western Protein Analyzer
Abby is the next generation chemiluminescence western protein analyzer who moves your Westerns into the 21st century. She automates protein size separation and immunodetection while delivering analyzed results of 24 samples in 3 hours. Abby saves the time spent in the lab carrying out traditional Western blot steps such as antibody additions, incubations, and washes. She delivers picogram-level sensitivity through chemiluminescence detection and workflow automation. You'll never want to touch a traditional Western blot again!
Abby leapfrogs traditional western blot technology by allowing the flexibility to do more with your precious samples. Investigate total / phospho targets or detect multiple targets in consecutive immunoassays within the same capillary using RePlex. Enjoy the flexibility of probe choice, low volume sample requirement, more data points per sample, and Simple Western automation in the next generation of Western blot analysis. With Abby you can even normalize your data with total protein detection in the same capillary using RePlex. Abby, she’s the next generation Western super-hero.
Abby re-imagines traditional Westerns with automated western blot technology. Simple Western assays on Abby are automated, capillary-based immunoassays that overcome complexities inherent to traditional Western. Abby automates Western blotting protocol steps such as antibody additions, incubations, and washes. Having problems detecting your protein of interest? No problem! Her picogram sensitivity and total protein detection, combined with fully analyzed results in 3 – 5 hours, ensure that you'll never want to touch a traditional Western blot again!
Chemiluminescent detection: Are you working with low abundance proteins or have little sample to spare for analysis? Abby solves both problems with her chemiluminescent detection. Enjoy picogram-level sensitivity that enables you to get the most data out of your samples.
Total Protein normalization. Reviewers are moving away from accepting normalization by housekeeping proteins due to their expression variability across different sample types. RePlex with Abby provides a more reliable method of normalizing to total protein.
What does Simple Western data on Abby look like?
Abby’s fully analyzed results can be viewed in either lane or electropherogram views. You can use the lane view option to compare band intensity or quantitatively analyze protein size and concentration. Compare the expression of proteins of interest to total protein. Data analysis with Compass’s user-friendly software is quick and easy. Save graph and baseline options with run files and quickly annotate lane view results with Compass lane view features. Lane annotation with Compass 6.0 saves hours spent annotating data in other programs. Spend more time thinking about your next paper and less time interpreting the results.
