Grant and publisher recommendations provide the best foundation for getting robust Western blot results.
That’s why we developed Empiria Studio Software with the help of publishers and incorporated the NIH Guidelines for Scientific Record Keeping. New automation methods make sure that all users achieve consistent results after analyzing images on the Odyssey® Imager. These results are then recorded and stored, thanks to Empiria Studio’s new Electronic Notebook function. Together, these new features and integrated publisher recommendations ensure that your analysis and results conform to accepted Western blotting standards.
Empiria Studio is the only software that provides reliable answers at every step of the process.
With Empiria Studio, you have the ability to analyze validation blots, determine target protein expression, compare replicates, perform statistical analysis, and share your results using one software package.
Find lanes automatically in Empiria Studio
with a patent-pending lane detection method.
When using Adaptive Lane Finding (ALF) instead of manual methods, analysis is accelerated and variability from manual lane placement is completely eliminated. With this automation, user-to-user consistency and data reliability are also greatly improved. Analyze up to 26 lanes and multiple channel images with up to two targets per channel. ALF works in conjunction with Adaptive Background Subtraction (ABS) to improve total protein stain quantification and help produce reliable Western blot results.
Quantification in Empiria Studio uses a patented background subtraction method optimized for consistency.
We call it “Adaptive Background Subtraction” (ABS) because it adapts to the unique background in each image and subtracts background automatically. Because you do not choose a background subtraction method, variability caused by subjective background subtraction choices is eliminated and results among multiple researchers are consistent.
Analysis with Empiria Studio starts simply — just create a Project.
Project-based organization allows you to quickly find and share experimental data and related validation data. Empiria Studio will even remind you if your Project is missing validation data that publishers require.
Empiria Studio has easy-to-follow analysis workflows for the validation experiments necessary to get reliable results.
Without an Antibody Validation, you can’t be sure your primary antibody is specific and selective to the expected target.
Without a Combined Linear Range Determination, you can’t be sure that you are loading the correct protein amount to accurately measure changes in protein expression.
Once you’ve validated that your experimental design is robust, it’s time to run experiments and analyze your blots.
With Empiria Studio, target protein data are automatically normalized (based on the type of internal loading control you used) and vital statistical values are automatically calculated.
At the end of a target analysis, Empiria Studio will calculate your fold change and automatically create a chart with the data. . You can see results within minutes and confidently draw conclusions — using one software package. No more need for spreadsheets, graphing software, or word processing in your Western blot analysis and reporting process.
Replicate samples and blots let you show that your results are robust and meaningful.
Empiria Studio lets you compare replicate samples on the same blot or across multiple blots to determine fold change, percent change, standard deviation, and other statistics. Now you can get the Western blot results you care about in one software package — without the uncertainty and hassle of formulas and spreadsheets!
No scientist is an island, so Empiria Studio makes it easy to share files and findings with your PI, colleagues, and publishers.
