Designed primarily for wet electroblotting of proteins, TankSub Electroblotters offer a combination of increased capacity with economy saving features. Both units, Mini 10 x 10cm and Maxi 20 x 20cm, have increased capacity over standard systems with up to five gel blot cassettes utilised at any one time. This is especially useful in high throughput laboratories.
A uniform electric field is provided by a high intensity coiled electrode and ensures uniform transfer across the blot surface. The cassette open architecture ensures the maximum blot area allows direct transfer of current. Its rigid construction ensures contact between the gel and membrane is retained throughout the blot and an even pressure is maintained. These units are compatible with magnetic stirrers to aid heat dispersal and prevent pH drifts in the buffer due to incomplete buffer mixing. Each system includes a cooling pack to further enhance transfer efficiency by removing excess heat. This also saves on buffer for added economy.
