Decreases immunodetection time by 80 percent
Millipore Corp. announces the launch of the new SNAP i.d. protein detection system that allows researchers to produce higher quality Western blots 80 percent more quickly than with conventional immunodetection protocols. By shortening the time required for blocking, washing and antibody incubations to 30 minutes, 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. Antibody solutions can be collected and reused for even more economical immunodetection. 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, to optimize conditions and increase their protein detection throughput.
