These stand-alone, complete units for electro-blotting, mini, mini-wide and maxi formats, include vertical tank and lid, electro-blotting insert, cassettes and fibre pads. Units are interchangeable with the vertical slab and tube gel inserts. Hinged rigid cassettes allow rapid set up and convenience and ensure even contact between the gel and membrane is maintained.
These semi-dry blotters offer rapid transfer times for DNA, RNA and protein blotting (typically 15 to 30 minutes). Ail units can be used for ail types of blotting and are compatible with gel thickness from 0.25 up to 10 mm withoutthe need for additional equipment. Each unit is compatible with their respective vertical gel system. Semi-dry blotting has the added benefit of economic transfers due to very low buffer volumes.
These semi-dry blotters utilise a screw down lid, which secures the blot sandwich and allows complete control of pressure ensuring even transfer. The electrodes, comprising platinum coated anode and stainless steel cathode, will exhibit practically no corrosion and so provide many years of trouble free use. Uniform heat dispersion across the blot sandwich ensures stable transfer times and no heat induced sample loss or transfer distor- tions. Electrode plates are fully separated to prevent arcing or damage.
