Protocol Outline
  1. Block membranes
  2. Incubate with Sample
  3. Incubate with Biotinylated Detection Antibody Cocktail
  4. Incubate with HRP-Conjugated Streptavidin
  5. Incubate with Detection Buffers

For best results, store the entire kit frozen at -20°C upon arrival. Stored frozen, the kit will be stable for at least 6 months which is the duration of the product warranty period. Once thawed, store array membranes and 1X Blocking Buffer at -20°C and all other reagents undiluted at 4°C for no more than 3 months.

1. Chmiluminescence detection step is quite weird. You have to put membrane in between two plastic covers. However, if you put multiple membranes it may give higher background than single membrane-development.
2. Blocking buffer may not sufficient if your samples need to be highly diluted.
3. All the protocol is considered for one membrane blot; therefore, if you are analyzing multiple membrane, you may have trouble in unequal volume. (If you make 4 mL buffer, you will never get 4 mL.)
4. I wish there is a tool for getting signal intensity. Software does not provide intensity-quantification function.
