Bio Rad Western Blot System
The Western Processor automates the western blot development process. After the antigen is applied to the membrane surface, the Western Processor will process the blot through the various washing, blocking, and incubation steps. Once the system is set-up with the required reagents and the appropriate assay is programmed, the Western Processor will proceed with the assay and alert you at certain critical steps and when the assay is completed.
The Western Processor is fully programmable from the front panel and can store up to ten (10) user defined assays. Each assay holds up to fifteen (15) steps where each step can contain up to six (6) cycles. In addition to these ten (10) user defined assays, the Western Processor contains five (5) pre-programmed assays designed specifically for use with Bio-Rad�s immunoassay kits.
The Western Processor holds one, two, or four Mini-blot Trays for processing mini blots and one Standard Tray for processing up to 20 x 20 cm blots.
