For automated processing of Western blot and Southern blot assay strips
Tecan’s family of blot processors support automated washing and incubation of up to 48 assay strips per run. It includes the temperature controlled ProfiBlot T48, which takes care of hybridization and stringent wash steps, enabling walkaway processing of Southern blot assay strips. In addition, the ProfiBlot 48 takes care of non-heated incubation and washing steps for automated processing of Western blot assays strips.

ProfiBlot T48
The ProfiBlot T48 is Tecan’s smart and reliable blot processor, designed to improve productivity and reproducibility by automating Southern blot and Western blot assays.It offers full automation of reagent dispensing, hybridization and washing of strip-based assays, and can be used for a range of applications, such as screening of infectious diseases, HLA-typing and HPV-testing.For reliable temperature control, the ProfiBlot T48 combines advanced top and bottom heating systems with an integrated reagent preheating station, as well as an active cooling system.
Built to improve safety and reliability in the laboratory, the ProfiBlot T48 has been designed to meet the IVD-directive 98/79/EC for Europe. It processes the entire assay in a disposable tray within an enclosed environment to minimize human exposure to potentially infectious samples.
