BlotCycler, an automated western blot washer and processor, based on patented fluid distribution technology. All steps after protein transfer to a membrane are fully automated: shaking, blocking, hybridization, washing, and recycling of primary antibody. BlotCycler offers users unique advantages over existing technologies in using immunoblotting for research and clinical work, and significantly reduces cost of the procedure and eliminates tedious hands-on work. Automation increases productivity, provides consistent results, eliminates operator errors and generate blot with higher signal and lower background. The introduction of BlotCycler set a new standard for performance for a wide range of tests and assays.
The benefits of BlotCycler include: Complete automation of all steps of membrane processing. It makes the results of immunoblotting reliable and reproducible.Simultaneous processing of six membranes. Each membrane can be treated with its own specific primary and secondary antibodies, i.e. six different primary and six different secondary antibodies can be used for simultaneous processing of membranes. All steps can be easily programmed for individual protocols.User can automatically collect and reuse primary antibodies.Complete removal of the traces of reagents by special shower system that automatically clean the device after each test. Effective mixing of the reagents inside the trays. Flexibility in protocol modification. Better control of your time.
Automated processing from 1 to 12 blots. Primary antibody is saved in the end of cycle. Autocleaning. Primary antibody incubation from 10 min to 72h. Secondary antibody incubation from 10 min to 48h. Number of washing cycles from 1 to 9.Execute practically any western blot protocol.Compact. Uses less than 12" of lab bench. Can be used almost anywhere. Only requires an electrical outlet. No vacuum, pressurized air or gas, or additional pumps required. Can recover primary antibodies. Easy programming from the front panel. Program up to 100 protocol steps with our easy to use interface. Adjustable parameters for each protocol step including Incubation time from 5 min to 72 hours, 1-12 blots per run. Audible alarm at the end of the protocol. Cleaning cycle at the end of the protocol. Wash buffer remains in the trays to keep the blots or gels wet. Use of the BlotCycler saves time by allowing overnight membrane processing. Built in the USA for years of trouble free use.
