The Thermo Scientific™ Pierce™ Power System is a device that can be used for both fast Coomassie dye staining of protein gels and for rapid semi-dry transfer of proteins from gel to membrane. The Pierce Power System features an integrated power supply, easy-to-use color LCD touchscreen interface, and pre-programmed electrophoretic gel staining and protein transfer methods for different types, numbers, and sizes of gels and molecular weight ranges of proteins.

• Flexible—efficiently stain or transfer protein in about 10 minutes with 1 system
• Integrated power supply—seamless operation between control unit and cassettes enables consistent high efficiency protein staining and transfer
• Convenient—simultaneously stain and destain 2 mini gels/1 midi gel or transfer 4 mini gels/2 midi gels
• Easy-touch programming—intuitive, color LCD touchscreen interface and pre-programmed methods for both Coomassie dye staining and rapid semi-dry transfer of proteins

The easy-touch programming feature allows custom staining or transfer settings to be quickly created, saved, and run. The included Pierce Power Stain Cassette allows Coomassie dye protein staining and unbound stain removal on up to 2 mini gels or 1 midi gel within 6 to 11 minutes using the optimized Pierce Power Staining kits.

The included Pierce Power Blot Cassette allows the simultaneous transfer of up to 4 mini-sized or 2 midi-sized precast and homemade SDS-PAGE gels to nitrocellulose or PVDF membranes. Protein transfer is consistent, highly efficient, and completed in minutes when using the optimized Pierce 1-Step Transfer Buffer. The instrument is also effective for standard 30- to 60-minute semi-dry transfer protocols using traditional Towbin transfer buffers.
