Western Blot Principle
Western blot is an important technique used in cell and molecular biology. By using a western blot,
researchers are able to identify specific proteins from a complex mixture of proteins extracted from cells.
The basic principle of western blot is to use three elements to accomplish this task:
(1) separation by size,
(2) transfer to a solid support, and
(3) marking target protein using a proper primary and secondary antibody to visualize.

Common
Problems
Recommended Troubleshooting
Unusual or
unexpected bands
• Use a fresh sample which had been kept on ice
or alter the antibody;
• Make sure the transfer sandwich is prepared
properly;
• Change the running buffer. Learn more…
No bands
• Make sure to use the right and appropriate
concentration of antibody;
• Increase the conc. of antigen;
• Buffers should be new and uncontaminated;
• Lower the washing time. Learn more…
Faint bands or
weak signal
• Increase the conc. of antigen or antibody;
• Increase exposure time;
• Change nonfat dry milk into BSA or decrease
the amount of milk. Learn more…
High background
• Lower the conc. of antibody;
• Increase washing time;
• Decrease exposure time. Learn more…
Patchy or uneven
spots
• Make sure of no air bubbles during transfer;
• use a shaker for all incubation;
• Change blocking buffer.
