Western Blot Video Tutorials

Western blot analysis is one of the most common methods used in the lab today, because of its versatility in detecting and measuring specific target proteins in a sample and revealing their activity and any post-translational modifications. Western blotting is a multi-step process that can take 1-2 days to complete, depending on the methods used. Below are videos that detail the common steps to perform a Western blot, from separating proteins in a lysate to developing the blot.
