The Bio-Rad Criterion Blotter is an electrophoretic transfer cell designed for use with Criterion precast gels as well as hand cast gels. The Criterion Blotter cell is available with standard wire platinum electrodes or with plate electrodes, which consist of a platinum-coated titanium anode and a stainless steel cathose. Transfers are performed with either set of electrodes positioned 4.3 cm apart, using one or two gel holder cassettes positioned between the electrodes. This allows generation of a high intensity electrical field for and efficient transfer when used in combination with the PowerPac 200 Power Supply. Cooling is required for temperature control and can be achieved with the sealed ice block included with the cell, or with the optional cooling coil. The Criterion Gel Blot Assembly Tray provides for lab tidy assembly of gel blot sandwiches and gel soaking, while minimizing the possibility of incorrect sandwich assembly. The foller is useful to ensure proper contact and removal of trapped bubbles during sandwich assembly.

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

It's like having the store come to you!
