Trans-Blot® Turbo™ Transfer System (170-4155)

"Bio-Rad’s transfer system is one of the best I have used. I have used iblot before. While most of the ways this machine is used are very similar to iblot, this machine is sturdier. There are more options for transfer. The two cassettes can hold 1–2 midi or up to 4 mini blotting sandwiches. There are so many options. We have size options with midi or mini and we also have PVDF or nitrocellulose. We also use their pre-cast gels, but it works very well with our home-made gels too. While the cost of using these systems may seem high, in reality it isn't, because we don't always factor in the cost of the person who spends time pouring gel, running gel and transferring them. Here, we save time and cost ultimately and get reliable, repeatable data. I am particularly impressed with after sales services provided. We had an issue with the cassette that our representative noticed while she was visiting and she had it replaced at no cost and without being asked to. Definitely will recommend t"

Trans-Blot® Turbo™ Transfer System (170-4155)

"It is simple, fast and easy to use semi dry transfer apparatus for westerns. It really helps when you need to do multiple western transfers a day. Even beginners can handle it without much handholding. For what it does its competitively priced. Also it doesn’t force us to use proprietary consumables unlike some of similar products from competitors. "

Review date: 21 Jan 2014

Application Area: Western Blot
Trans-Blot® Turbo™ Transfer System (170-4155)

"It is simple to use and fast to finish for Western Blot. Western Blot takes times every step including running gel, gel transfer, and antibody treatment. It is critical to ready a membrane before end of day for overnight treatment of a primary antibody. It is not necessary to pre-soak the gel before transferring and takes only 7 minutes for transferring the gel to membrane. Another attractive thing is that it can transfer 4 gels at the same time in 7 minutes. I recommend if you regularly perform a lot of Western Blot to save your time and reduce your burden. Time is money."

It is a very accurate system and transfers almost all the protein to the membrane. The only problem faced at times is during transfer when air bubbles get in. Otherwise it’s perfect!!"

Application Area: Breast Cancer Research
Trans-Blot® Turbo™ Transfer System (170-4155)

"The product is easy to use, however the precast gels can get a little costly. The SDS gel runs fast and quick to speed up the process. We have had no issues with the apparatus itself which allows us to run four gels at once. The transfer of proteins are sufficient for a good Western blot result in which we can compare relatively easily across experimental runs. Bio-Rad usually runs great specials that will give you the apparatus free with the purchase of the SDS pre-cast gels. I have had high school students, undergraduate college students, masters students, and lab technicians use the product and they all enjoy the ease and user friendliness of the products that Bio-Rad offers. The product is very durable and we have been using the product for over three years."

Description

 

The Trans-Blot Turbo Transfer System is a high-performance western blotting system designed to provide rapid transfers with high efficiency.

It combines traditional blotting techniques with modern filter paper and buffers, allowing rapid transfer of proteins from gels to membranes with minimal preparation time. The system integrates a high amperage power supply that directs current between a built-in platinized titanium anode and a stainless steel cathode. This enables blot transfer of protein in as little as 3 minutes without sacrificing performance.

The entire system is in a ready-to-use format that allows researchers to obtain their results faster and easier, with reproducibility that is difficult to achieve using traditional blotting methods. The Trans-Blot Turbo Transfer Packs includes an optimized buffer, membrane, and filter paper combination that provides superior blot transfers when paired with the Trans-Blot Turbo blotting apparatus.


Trans-Blot® Turbo™ Transfer System Features and Benefits:

  • Rapid transfer — transfers mini or midi gels in as little as 3 min.
  • High throughput — can transfer 1–4 mini or 1–2 midi gels in a single run.
  • Greater transfer efficiency — higher transfer efficiency compared to other transfer methods.
  • Flexible design — allows user to customize transfer conditions and is compatible with traditional semi-dry consumables.
  • Environmentally friendly — environmentally safe consumables eliminate disposal cost.
