Fluorescent Western Blot Kit: MaxTag™ for IRDYE® Immunoblotting Description

Use Rockland's MaxTag™ Kit for Duplex IRDYE® Immunoblotting for the detection of Rabbit and Mouse primary antibodies using infrared-labeled antibodies to form an antigen-antibody-antibody complex that is immobilized on a membrane (immunoblot) and detected using a two channel infrared scanner such as LI-COR's Odyssey® Infrared Imaging System. This Kit is useful for both “western blotting” and “dot blotting” methods and can be used for single (1-color) or duplex (2-color) antibody detection (see Figure 3). Nitrocellulose membrane formats are preferred (see sections XI and XII for more details). If you require additional assistance please call or e-mail our technical service representatives at 800-656-7625 or tech@rockland-inc.com.

Application Note
Infrared-labeled antibodies and controls provided in this kit are sufficient to run approximately 25 immunoblots each measuring 10 cm x 10 cm. The amount of antibody supplied when diluted as recommended in our protocol will yield 1000 ml of working solution. Adjustments in volumes for larger or smaller blots will effect the number of blots detected. Blocking and washing buffers are provided in limited quantities so that the user can immediately begin to process immunoblots. These buffers can be re-ordered in larger quantities for economical use (see ''Replacement Parts'').
This kit allows for the individual (1-color) or simultaneous (2-color) detection of primary rabbit antibodies using an IRDye®800 conjugated secondary antibody (green) and primary mouse antibodies using an IRDye®700DX conjugated secondary antibody (red). The user is required to provide all primary antibodies. After protein separation and transfer, the membrane is blocked to prevent non-specific protein binding using a specially formulated blocking buffer for infrared fluorescent immunoblot detection. After washing the membrane, user-provided unlabeled primary antibodies are bound to the antigen. Additional washings are followed by the addition of IRDye®800 and IRDye®700DX conjugated secondary antibodies (see Figure 1). Final washing removes excess reagents and the membrane is further prepared for simultaneous scanning at two wavelengths to detect antibody complexes using a two channel infrared scanner such as LI-COR's Odyssey® Infrared Imaging System. The labeled antibodies are detected directly on the membrane, eliminating film, darkrooms, and messy substrates, while preserving high sensitivity (see Figure 2).
