    Biography
      Emily Goplen is the product manager for protein detection reagents and systems in the Biosciences Division at Thermo Fisher Scientific. She joined the team in early 2015, coming from an academic background in biological sciences and product management career in the health care industry. She currently manages a range of products including western blotting reagents and kits (ex. SuperSignal™ chemiluminescent substrates), protein quantitation assays (ex. Pierce™ BCA Protein assay), and assay development reagents (ex. Pierce™ NeutrAvidin™ coated plates). In addition, Emily dedicates much of her time to interacting with customers across the academic, industrial and diagnostic markets to identify key areas of opportunity for new platform and breakthrough product development.

    Abstract:

    Western blotting is a dependable, trusted method for protein detection used by thousands of labs worldwide. While the process of western blotting often seems straightforward, different variables used within the workflow can sometimes create a time consuming and complex system. A critical and instrumental step in the western workflow is the transfer of proteins from gel to membrane. Over the past several years, many different methods and devices have been introduced to help improve, accelerate and reduce hands-on time of the transfer step, regardless of the gel chemistry, membrane type or protein of interest involved. In this session we will discuss the key aspects and benefits of three primary western blotting transfer technologies: traditional wet (tank) transfer, semi-dry transfer and dry transfer.
