BlockPRO™ Protein-Free Blocking Buffer
Protein-Free Blocking Buffer for Your Every Need.

BlockPRO™ Protein Free Blocking Buffer is a non-protein formulation which enhances sensitivity and minimizes background noise, presenting better results than traditional protein-based blocking buffer in immunoassays. The synthetic formulation of BlockPRO™ Protein-Free Blocking Buffer makes it suitable for PVDF and nitrocellulose platform, avidin/biotin system, detection of phosphoprotein, and other immunochemical applications.

Product Detail:

 

 

Figure 1. BlockPRO™ Protein-Free Blocking Buffer is better than protein-based blocking buffers (skim milk, BSA and casein) for detection of target protein in Western blotting.

THP-1 cell lysates were prepared and separated by electrophoresis. The proteins were transferred to PVDF and blocked for 1 hour at room temperature with the indicated blocking buffer, probed with mouse anti-pAMPK followed by anti-mouse HRP and detected by chemiluminescence. All results were exposed to X-ray film for 30 seconds.

 

 

 

 

Figure 2. BlockPRO™ Protein-Free is suitable for various protein antigen detection, such as high molecular weight protein, tACC; phosphoprotein, pAMPK; abundant protein, GAPDH; low molecular weight protein, histone H3.

THP-1 cell lysates were prepared and separated by electrophoresis. The proteins were transferred to PVDF and blocked for 1 hour at room temperature with BlockPRO™ Protein-Free Blocking Buffer. Antibodies designed to probe the indicated proteins were used. All the signals were detected by chemiluminescence and were exposed to X-ray film.

 

 

 

 

Figure  3. BlockPRO™ Protein-Free Blocking Buffer can be used in both PVDF and nitrocellulose platform. 

Hela cell lysates were prepared and separated by SDS-PAGE. The proteins were transferred to PVDF or nitrocellulose membranes. The membranes were blocked for overnight at 4 °C with BlockPRO™ Protein-Free Blocking Buffer or 5% skim milk, probed with mouse anti-histone H3 followed by anti-mouse HRP and detected by chemiluminescence. All results were exposed to X-ray film for 30 seconds.
