Description

The Trans-Blot® transfer cell is a versatile apparatus ideal for a wide variety of blotting applications.

Features and Benefits

  • Multiple transfers accommodate up to 3 PROTEAN® II xi gels, 6 Criterion™ gels, or 12 Mini-PROTEAN® handcast or precast gels
  • Flexible parameters with variable power settings provide from 30 V for overnight transfers to 200 V for rapid 1 hr experiments
  • Electrodes can be positioned 8 cm apart for standard blots or 4 cm apart for high-intensity blots
  • Temperature regulation with the super-cooling coil and a water recirculator is ideal for native enzyme (4°C) high-intensity transfers and extended transfers (up to 24 hr) without buffer depletion
  • Hinged gel holder cassette clamping system eliminates slipping and ensures tight contact between membrane and gel
  • Color-coded cassettes ensure proper orientation in the cell

Applications and Uses

  • Western blotting
  • Nucleic acid transfer

To understand the components of the instrument, see the Trans-Blot Cell Components overlay.
