Electrophoresis Chamber Systems
Bolt™ Mini Blot Module
Complete your Bolt™ system with the innovative Bolt™ Mini Blot Module that conveniently fits into the chambers of the Bolt™ Mini Gel Tank. The Bolt™ Mini Blot Module is a wet-transfer device that allows you to easily transfer proteins from mini gels to membranes.
XCell SureLock™ Mini-Cell Electrophoresis System
The XCell SureLock™ Mini-Cell’s unique design allows you to run mini-gels quickly, easily, and leak-free without any clamps or grease. The set-up time is only 30 seconds and you get consistent results every time. You can also transfer your gel to western membranes with the optional XCell II™ Blot Module, using the same Lower Buffer Chamber.
XCell6™ MultiGel Electrophoresis System
The XCell6™ MultiGel Unit allows you to simultaneously run between three and six Novex® Pre-cast gels, making it ideal for running column fractions, 2 Dimensional Electrophoresis (2DE) gels, and triplicate samples. Its reliable performance and passive cooling system save you time, money, and hassle.
XCell4 SureLock™ Midi-Cell Electrophoresis System
The XCell4 SureLock™ Midi-Cell Electrophoresis System's unique design allows you to quickly and easily perform simultaneous vertical electrophoresis of 1-4 midi-gels without leaking, resulting in consistent performance.
Novex® E-Base™ High Throughput Electrophoresis System
E-PAGE™ Gels run in the specially designed E-Base™ electrophoresis bases, which combine the base and the power source in one device. The E-Base™ devices are compatible with the Society for Biomolecules Screening (SBS)-standard plate size and can be conveniently mounted on liquid handling robot decks.The E-Base™ can run E-Gel® 96, E-Gel® 48, E-PAGE™ 96, or E-PAGE™ 48 systems.
