The Invitrogen iBlot 2 Gel Transfer Device is used for the transfer of proteins or nucleic acids from polyacrylamide gels to a nitrocellulose or PVDF membrane for Western blotting or Southern blotting applications. The purpose of this device is to provide a more efficient and convenient way to transfer the separated molecules from the gel onto the membrane, while reducing the risk of damage or loss during the transfer process.
This device uses a dry transfer system, eliminating the need for buffers and reducing the transfer time to as little as 7 minutes. The iBlot 2 Gel Transfer Device is designed for use with the iBlot 2 Transfer Stacks, which are pre-cut and pre-assembled transfer stacks that provide consistent transfer efficiency and reliability. Overall, the iBlot 2 Gel Transfer Device is an important tool for protein and nucleic acid research, enabling researchers to efficiently transfer and analyze their samples.
