Millipore Corporation, a Life Science leader providing technologies, tools and services for bioscience research and biopharmaceutical manufacturing, announced the launch of the new SNAP i.d. protein detection system that allows researchers to produce higher quality western blots in just 22 minutes.
Typically, researchers lack the time to optimize their blotting protocols. By shortening the time required for blocking, washing, and antibody incubations, the SNAP i.d. system allows researchers to optimize their immunodetection conditions for the highest quality results. The SNAP i.d. system is compatible with all membrane types and detection methods, such as chemiluminescence and fluorescence. Both sensitivity and specificity are equivalent or higher than standard immunodetection, with no additional reagent consumption required.
The SNAP i.d. system produces western blots of very high quality because its unique, vacuum-driven technology and built-in flow distributor actively drive reagents through the membrane, ensuring even distribution. Three different sizes of blot holders accommodate up to three blots each, and two blot holders can be run in parallel. Thus, researchers can process up to six blots in parallel, quickly optimize conditions, and greatly increase their protein detection throughput
