The revolutionary iBlot Dry Blotting System just got better.

Introducing the new and improved Invitrogen™ iBlot™ 2 Dry Blotting System. Enjoy fast western transfer without sacrificing efficiency and uniformity. The new iBlot 2 system is compatible with both polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) and nitrocellulose membranes, and has comparable performance to traditional wet transfer methods in a fraction of the time. Now, with a new touch screen, less consumable waste, and sturdy design, fast western transfer never looked better.

Faster, more efficient protein transfer

Self-contained unit for faster, more convenient transfers

The iBlot 2 Dry Blotting System efficiently and reliably blots proteins from polyacrylamide gels in 7 minutes or less without the need for additional buffers or an external power supply. A self-contained unit, the iBlot device uses disposable blotting stacks with integrated nitrocellulose or PVDF membranes, offering the convenience of a bufferless, plug-and-play system.

High transfer efficiency

In addition to ease and convenience, the iBlot system offers high-efficiency protein transfers for high downstream detection sensitivity—in many cases, higher than wet and semi-dry transfer methods. In the end, you’ll achieve more accurate detection using less sample.

Fits your gel size

The iBlot Dry Blotting System is designed to work with multiple polyacrylamide gel sizes, including the midi size, fitting Bolt™ Bis-Tris Plus gels, Novex™ Midi Gels (8 x 13 cm), E-PAGE™ 48 and 96 gels (13.5 x 10.8 cm), and mini gels (8 x 8 cm).
