iBlot® 7-Minute Blotting System

"I find the system not especially useful for transfer of western blot plus not particularly more effective than traditional semi wet or wet transfers. It also requires the purchase of one use reagents which makes the system rather expensive and inconvenient."

"iBlot system is good for low molecular weight protein but not for high molecular weight protein. One needs to standardize case by case if the iBlot system is suitable for use in any particular situation."

iBlot® 7-Minute Blotting System

"The iBlot system from Invitrogen is time saving. It is a convenient system for transferring your western blot and lets you finish your western blotting in a day-that includes running your gel to visualizing it. My blots always came out clean and its very user friendly. Having said that, it’s a little on the expensive side. Also watch out if you are going for the nitrocellulose membrane. If you are planning on stripping and r- probing go for the PVDF. They are better than the nitrocellulose. Happy Blotting!"

"I started use iBlot@7-minute blotting system 2 years ago. The blotting system is very useful. Really save a lot time. And very efficiently. Before, we usually transfer a membrane for more than 2 hrs, but now, I can finish in 7 minutes. I never worry about not going home on time!"

iBlot® 7-Minute Blotting System

"After years of 30-180 minute transfers, the iBlot system is a 7-8 minute breeze. The quality of the blot is as good or better than the old technique, but the speed of transfer makes overnight transfers a thing of the past. Some optimization is recommended, even if you think the default is giving great results, try a couple of the others to confirm."

Review date: 18 Dec 2012

Application Area: Western Blot Transfers
iBlot® 7-Minute Blotting System

"The iBlot system is very easy to use and very fast in comparison to traditional transfer methods. It is user-friendly, quick and works well, because of this I would recommend it. However, the only downside is that components of the transfer such as the copper gel and sponge are not reusable, which feels a little bit wasteful."

Description

 

The iBlot® 7-Minute 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.

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.

The iBlot® 7-Minute Blotting System is designed to work with multiple polyacrylamide gel sizes, including the midi size, fitting 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).


iBlot® 7-Minute Blotting System Features:

  • Fast - protein transfer in 7 minutes or less
  • High quality transfer - efficient transfers without bubbles or distortions
  • Convenient - Self contained unit without the need for additional buffer or external power supply
  • Reproducible - reduces blot preparation and running variability
