Informational:Like our original iBlot Dry Blotting System? Then you'll love our iBlot 3 Dry Blotting System which enables twice the throughput and features optional built-in cooling for better consistency. Learn more about the benefits of the iBlot 3 here.
iBlot™ Transfer Stacks are used to transfer proteins using the iBlot™ Gel Transfer Device. The iBlot™ Transfer Stacks are disposable stacks that come in three varieties for different applications. iBlot™ Gel Transfer Stacks have integrated PVDF or nitrocellulose transfer membranes to perform dry blotting of proteins. iBlot™ DNA Transfer Stacks have an integrated nylon transfer membrane to perform dry blotting of DNA. iBlot™ Western Detection Stacks are used to perform western detection on previously blotted nitrocellulose or PVDF membranes. Each iBlot™ Transfer Stack contains a copper electrode and appropriate cathode and anode buffers in the gel matrix to allow fast, reliable transfer of proteins or DNA.
Nitrocellulose membrane The nitrocellulose membrane (0.2 μm pore size) is composed of 100% pure nitrocellulose to provide high-quality transfer. The membrane is compatible with commonly used detection methods such as staining, immunodetection, fluorescence, or radiolabeling. Proteins bind to the membrane due to hydrophobic and electrostatic interactions. The protein binding capacity is 209 μg/cm2.
Transfer stack sizes The regular size (13 cm x 8.3 cm) is used for all Novex™ midi-gel types (or equivalent) and E-PAGE™ 48 or 96 Gels. The mini size (8 cm x 8 cm) is used for all Novex™ mini-gels (or equivalent).
