Peptide Directed Antibodies

The use of peptide facilitates the production of antibodies for those occasions where a protein may not work such as:

  • Post Translational Modification
    sites such as phosphorylation, glycosylation, sulphation, methylation, etc
  • Splice sites and neo-epitopes
  • Heterogeneous regions of
    conserved proteins
  • Cross-species antibodies
  • Transmembrane loops

 Westar Products

Westar: ECL Kits are a range of complete, ready-to-use kits for the horseradish peroxidase-based enhanced chemiluminescence detection (ECL) of immobilised proteins (Western Blot) and immobilised nucleic acids (Southern and Northern Blot).

Each kit consists of two reagents that just need mixing before use. The chemiluminescent signal generated by Westar reagents can be detected either by film or by digital cameras based on CCD sensors.


3 kits are available to suit most applications, ranging from the cost-effective Westar Nova, extended duration Westar XT and the extremely sensitive Westar Supernova
