Rapid: Downward capillary transfer allows for alkaline buffer transfers in 1 hour, and neutral (SSC) transfers in 3 hours
Easy to use: Very easy to set up and works without power or vacuum source
Economical: Reusable blotting device requires less buffer and blotting paper (convenient refill packs available)
Compact: Smaller footprint than most homemade devices, in a stackable design (up to 5 units can be stacked during transfers)
The TurboBlotter System is a rapid downward blotting device for high-resolution transfer of DNA and RNA. It provides high-resolution alkaline transfers of DNA in less than one hour, and performs neutral (SSC) transfers of DNA and RNA within three hours. Larger device is stackable for multiple, simultaneous transfers. Reusable and easy to assemble, refills use Whatman Nytran SPC membrane and Whatman 3MM Chr and GB003 or GB005 blotting papers for top performance. The conventional Northern/Southern transfer stack has been turned upside down in order to take advantage of gravity. No heavy weights are required on the top of the transfer stack, eliminating the messy set-up of standard upward capillary transfers.
Ordering Information: TurboBlotter™ systems include transfer device, 5 sheets of membrane, 40 sheets of GB002 gel blot paper, 100 sheets of GB004 gel blot paper, and 5 wicks of GB002 gel blot paper. Refills include 5 sheets of membrane, 40 sheets of GB002 gel blot paper, 100 sheets of GB004 gel blot paper, and 5 wicks of GB002 gel blot paper.
