The Thermo Scientific™ Pierce™ Power Blotter is designed specifically for rapid semi-dry transfer of 10-300 kDa proteins from polyacrylamide gels to nitrocellulose or PVDF membranes in 5 to 10 minutes. The Pierce Power Blotter features an integrated power supply optimized to enable consistent, high-efficiency protein transfer when used with commonly used precast or homemade gels (SDS-PAGE) and nitrocellulose or PVDF membranes.

Features of the Pierce Power Blotter include:
• Efficient—achieve high transfer efficiency with a broad range of protein sizes (10-300 kDa) compared to conventional semi-dry or wet (tank) transfer methods
• Fast—transfer proteins in 5 to 10 minutes when used with 1-Step Transfer Buffer
• Integrated power supply—seamless operation between control unit and cassette enables consistent high efficiency protein transfer
• Easy-touch programming—access pre-programmed transfer methods or create, save, and run customized transfer methods
• Convenient—simultaneously transfer 1 to 4 mini gels or 1 to 2 medium-sized gels
• Versatile—use with Pierce 1-Step Transfer Buffer for rapid blotting programs or Towbin transfer buffer for conventional semi-dry transfer methods
• Upgrade-ready—adding the Pierce Power Stain Cassette activates the pre-loaded software making this unit a fully functional Pierce Power System with gel staining and blotting capabilities

The Power Blot cassette enables the simultaneous transfer of up to four mini-sized gels or two midi-sized gels. The Power Station component of the Power Blotter has an easy-to-use color LCD touchscreen interface and pre-programmed transfer methods for different numbers and sizes of gels and ranges of protein molecular weight. The easy-touch programming feature allows custom transfer settings to be quickly created, saved, and run.

The Pierce Power Blotter achieves highly efficient transfer in typically less than 10 minutes when used with Pierce 1-Step Transfer Buffer. The instrument is also effective for standard 30- to 60-minute semi-dry transfer protocols based on traditional buffers.
