GOBlot - the solution for automated Western blotting

Since its introduction, the GOBlot Western Blot Processor has saved an estimated and collective 40'000 hours of valuable research time. GOBlot is a reliable fluid delivery device for reproducibly probing blots and membranes with primary and secondary antibodies in a fully automated fashion. Prefill buffer and antibody solution tanks, place your membrane and walk away.

More about the GOBlot and how it works

No expensive consumables, allows recycling of your primary antibody

The GOBlot Western Blot Processor allows the operator to load up of their own membranes, add their blocking solution, primary and secondary antibodies. Plus, you can easily recycle your primary antibody.

Choice of four routines

Choose from the four pre-loaded routines.Then press the start button and walk away. Return after four hours to develop your blot using fluorescence, chemiluminescence or another method of detection.

Modular and economical

The machine is designed to be modular and economical so that you utilize multiple machines running at different times with different routines and different antibodies. In other words, it’s very flexible for multiple users. Also, being modular means that you can add new units when the budget allows or your project demands it.
