Western blotting is an important technique for characterizing specific protein targets. Successful western detection is dependent on the quality of protein transfer from polyacrylamide gels to the blotting membranes, and on the processing steps and reagents used. The traditional wet transfer method offers high transfer efficiency, but at a cost of time and effort. Improvements to dry and semi-dry transfer systems have greatly improved the transfer speed (less than 10 min) and convenience without compromising transfer efficiency. This poster will discuss the traditional wet blotting transfer technique as compared to dry and semi-dry transfer techniques.
