For those planning to purchase multiple items for specific projects or techniques, Biocom Packages combine convenience with excellent value. omniPAGE WAVE Blotting Systems include all necessary components for blotting of vertical slab gels. Interchangeable modular inserts combine vertical PAGE with electrotransfer using the same universal tank and lid. The electroblotting module includes four inter-locking cassettes and eight fibre pads, with capacity for up to 4 WAVE Maxi gels, 8 omniPAGE Mini Wide or 16 omniPAGE Mini gels. The Standard insert with platinum wire electrodes 8cm apart is ideal for optimum capacity – at voltages as low as 35V. A detachable cooling coil, which connects to the laboratory water supply or a recirculating chiller, prevents buffer depletion and so allows overnight transfers while also maintaining the low temperatures important for protein stability during native transfers and also for fast high-intensity blots. Modules are interchangeable with omniPAGE slab modules. Hinged rigid cassettes allow rapid set up and convenience and ensure even contact between the gel and membrane is maintained. OMNI20CBS-PS MAXIPACK comprises the complete omniPAGE WAVE Maxi Vertical Electrophoresis & Blotting System with casting base plus PowerPoint Midi MP-300 – 300V, 700mA, 150W power supply.

POWERPOINT Programmable Power Supplies are high performance, easy to operate instruments which represent excellent value. This inexpensive, compact POWERPOINT MIDI power supply is ideal for routine horizontal and mini vertical electrophoresis. Microprocessor control allows the unit to be set-up to run in constant voltage and constant current modes. Four gel chambers can be connected at any one time. A timer with alarm and pause functions can be set to end of run. Safety features include shrouded plugs and sockets, no load detection and ground leakage detection.

The omniPAGE range of Vertical Gel Units combines ease of use with high resolution separations. All models share a host of common features including a guaranteed leak proof seal required for trouble free, rapid and uncomplicated gel casting. Utilising a built in gel running module eliminates time consuming transfer of glass plates during casting, a process which can cause gel damage and misalignment. Glass plates with permanently bonded spacers guarantee perfect spacer alignment. The glass plate sandwich is simply inserted between pressure bars and sealed using and easy to use sliding gates system. This ensures fast set up times while even pressure bars and ultra soft seals guarantee leak proof casting. Once the gel has polymerised, the gel running module is simply inserted into the gel tank for electrophoresis.

omniPAGE Electroblotting Systems include both modules required for Slab Gel Electrophoresis and Electroblotting along with accessories, to provide a complete Mini Vertical gel casting, running and electroblotting system. The electroblotting module includes four inter-locking cassettes and eight fibre pads. Hinged rigid cassettes allow rapid set up and convenience and ensure even contact between the gel and membrane is maintained. A high intensity current is generated by coiled platinum electrodes. These in conjunction with the advanced cooling features allow rapid electroblotting in as little as one hour.
