For Efficient Southern and Northern Blotting
  • Fast and efficient transfer of DNA or RNA
  • Large buffer tank permits easy recycling of transfer buffer
  • Reliable and quiet pump with adjustable vacuum

Fast Transfer
Transfer of nucleic acids to membranes during Southern or Northern analysis is traditionally done by capillary blotting, a time-consuming procedure that usually takes 12 hours to complete. With vacuum blotting, transfer times can be reduced to 15 - 60 minutes.

Vacu-Blot is built for long life. It features a solid and durable construction made of acryl. A reliable sealing system guarantees efficient transfer and short working times. The large tank allows easy recycling of buffer and protects the pump from buffer aspiration.

The Vacu-Blot System was designed to offer maximum flexibility - the sealing platform accommodates gels of all thicknesses and sizes up to 20 x 20 cm while the vacuum pump has adjustable pressure down to 100 mbar absolute.
