Use the ChemiDoc MP V3 Western Workflow for Mini Gels for streamlined electrophoresis and blotting. The versatile full-feature ChemiDoc MP Imaging System permits a wide range of gel imaging and blotting applications. This system is compatible with a wide range of fluorophores (see the fluorophore compatibility chart), such as StarBright™ Secondary Antibodies, ethidium bromide, SYPRO Ruby, Coomassie, and silver stains.

The western blotting protocol with the V3 Western Workflow for mini gels provides a five-step approach combining traditional blotting techniques with innovative tools, allowing you to quickly check electrophoresis results and blot transfer quality prior to western blotting.

Features and Benefits

  • Efficient workflow — rapid results with the ability to validate each step
  • Multiplex fluorescence blotting — detect multiple antigens simultaneously; eliminate stripping and reprobing
  • Compatibility with a wide range of fluorophores and stains — for chemiluminescence, colorimetric, stain-free, and fluorescence (RGB, far red and near IR) detection
  • Stain-free imaging enabled — obtain a gel image in 5 min without staining and destaining; normalization by total protein
  • Easy to use — intuitive touch-screen user interface, automatic selection of optimal light source by application, auto focus, auto exposure, and preview features
