The Life Technologies Inc. iBind Western Device, System SLF1000, is an automated western-processing device that performs every step from blocking to washes to antibody incubations via sequential lateral flow (SLF). SLF allows the timely release and flow of solutions and antibodies to the membrane without need of an external power source, shakers, or trays.
The iBind Western Device works exclusively with iBind Cards and the iBind Solution Kit or iBind Fluorescent Detection (FD) Solution Kit to process one mini-membrane for immunodetection. The iBind device provides automated convenience and superior reproducibility over traditional manual methods. Each solution is released from the iBind device wells to an iBind Card via SLF in ~2.5 hours. The glass fiber matrix of the card allows for homogenous and consistent flow of the solutions over the membrane, increasing the antigen-antibody interaction.
