I have done ordinary quantitative Western blots in replicates but I
assumed ELISAs to provide me with more accurate and precise results.

Would dot blots give even better results than ordinary quantitative
Western blots in replicates? I have never done protein dot blots
before, only performed cDNA dot blots so far.
