What is Optimization of Western Blots?

Optimization of western blots is important as this is done to increase the signal to noise ratio of your results, and also decrease non-specific bands. Optimization is carried out usually in a trial and error or a more organized approach by using different blocking, incubation and washing conditions.

Factors in Western Blot Optimization

Several factors are key in optimizing Western Blots:

  • SDS-PAGE Gel electrophoresis - without a good gel you will not get a great membrane
  • Selecting the Right Antibodies (both primary and secondary) and Using them Properly (dilution is important)
  • Blocking Conditions
  • Washing Conditions
  • Development Condition
