HiBiT Blotting: A Fast and Sensitive Western Blot Alternative
- Results in as little as 5 minutes
- No antibody required
- Low background and high sensitivity
- No washing or blocking steps
See how HiBiT blotting compares to traditional FLAG methods
- In traditional Western blotting, you need an antibody to your protein of interest or epitope tag, and a method for detecting that antibody.
- With HiBiT, no antibody is needed, eliminating processing steps and minimizing hands-on time.
- Easy quantitation and detection
- No blocking needed
- No background, unlike antibody-based methods, with HiBiT blotting it doesn't matter if the detection reagent binds non-specifically to the membrane. There will be no luminescent signal except where it has bound to a HiBiT tagged protein.
- Monitoring protein abundance in the cell
- Protein degradation research
- Monitoring receptor internalization
- Inserting and detecting CRISPR knock-ins
