The AutoBlot 3000 fully automates the Western blot assay. Following the manual addition of test samples, the AutoBlot incubates, washes, and performs subsequent reagent additions as defined by the operator during the programming phase. It permits easy setup with walk-away performance, sounding an alarm when the test is complete. The AutoBlot dispenses and aspirates up to twenty strips in 90 seconds. This means the automated assay runs as quickly as the manual assay. The 3000 model dispenses up to six reagents, depending on the number of pumps purchased.
The 3000 is fully programmable from the front panel and stores up to ten user-defined protocols within the unit, allowing for full customization of blot assays for dispense, incubation, and aspiration.
Dispense volumes, incubation times, and rock speed can be programmed in any combination within a protocol.
The AutoBlots have a low profile and small footprint that minimize desktop space. Because of their compact size, either instrument can be boxed and shipped to our Service Department for servicing or preventive maintenance with minimal disruption to your schedule.
