RE: Regarding primary antibody binding in western blot
I have also observed people probing multiple PVDF blots separated by a nylon mesh to prevent the blots from
sticking to each other, in a box that is just larger than the blot itself. I thought that was a neat idea. You
can try that way too.

Yes, you can certainly put 2 membranes in the same box with your primary antibody. Just make sure that the
membranes are back to back, so that the protein side of each membrane is facing outward to the antibody solution.
