The workshop was presented by Dr. Joanna Porankiewicz-Asplund, Agrisera's Technical Support Manager. Joanna shared her extensive knowledge and vast exprience of 20+ years of using this widely employed protein analysis technique.

The workshop consisted of two parts, including a 10 minute break for coffee and the Agrisera Antibody and Western blot Quizzes, which were very well attended. Many interesting questions were asked. 

Participants also had a chance to win an Agrisera high-titer secondary antibody and 2 ECL reagents, in quizzes with questions about antibodies and the Western blot technique.

Each participant of the workshop received a pdf of the presentation with links to additional information, as well as the recording of the workshop for the future use.  

  Some feedback which we received after the workshop: 

"The workshop was fascinating; I did not know many details about Western. It was fun!"

"Thank you for all the insights and your expertise ! I will try to convince everyone using the Western blot technique in my lab to optimize their protocol instead of using always the same one !"
