SignalBright Chemiluminescent Substrate

To detect antibody binding to a protein of interest during a western blot (WB) experiment, a signal generation system is required. The most common method of signal generation for WB is a primary or secondary antibody conjugated to the enzyme horseradish peroxidase (HRP), which emits light in the presence of a luminol and a peroxide buffer (Figure 1). This enzyme-substrate combination only produces light during the reaction, after which signal output diminishes.

Figure 1: Signal generation in chemiluminescent western blotting.

A secondary antibody with an HRP conjugate enables the detection of a target protein by oxidizing its substrate luminol with the emission of light as a by-product.

Proteintech is excited to launch our new range of highly sensitive chemiluminescent substrates.  Our SignalBirght Chemiluminescent Substrate range of SignalBright Pro (PK10011), SignalBright Plus (PK10012), and SignalBright Max (PK10013) is perfect for the detection of femtogram levels of protein. See the table of comparisons below to select which substrate is right for you.
