The Freedom Rocker is an automated blot washer. It is a very quiet laboratory platform rocker with a pump and a microprocessor for precise timing and user programming of protocols. It automatically processes blots and gels. It frees you from babysitting your samples by relieving you from the frequent pouring of liquids to and from trays.
Same as the FRSKDX4, but also includes the multi-dispense feature, which enables the dispensing of a different reagent, i.e. antibody, into each of the trays (but they cannot be collected separately).
Rocker with automated buffer exchangers, Freedom rocker Features
Unattended dispensing and aspiration of liquids to 1 or 2 trays in the FRSKDX2 model, or 1, 2, or 4 trays in the FRSKDX4 model.
Compact. Uses only 12 in. of lab bench space
Only requires an electrical outlet - no vacuum, pressurized air or gas, or additional pumps required.
Can recover reagent solution.
Drip proof quick-release connections.
Adjustable Parameters for each protocol step include:
rocking speed (0 to 40 cycles per minute)
reagent/solution rocking time (1 min to 90 hours)
dispense volume (10 to 600 ml)
up to 5 repetitions per step.
clearing rinse option
Patent pending technology.
Rocking continues after the final rinse and the wash buffer remains in the trays to prevent the blots or gels from dessicating.
Customization available (e.q. aspirate into particular bottles or carboys, custom platform sizes).
Uses existing protocols. Programming is easy and follows standard protocols steps. Can program up to 9 steps where each step is an immersion in a reagent (e.g. antibody) or a series of washes.
Each step - Select dispense from any of 3 reagents/buffers. Reagents will be dispensed and aspirated to all the trays simultaneously, for consistent processing of all the blots and gels (one reagent at a time will go to all the trays). Select aspirate to waste or either of 2 recovery containers. Minimum dispense volume is 10 mL per tray.
Clearing rinse can be activated or deactivated for each step individually.
Alarm at the end of the last step can be activated or deactivated.
Color coded tubing simplify connections to bottles.
Can dispense different reagents to each tray.
Reagents are dispensed from syringes on the dispense head.
Multi-dispensed reagents cannot be recovered sperately.
3 dispense bottles
3 collection bottles
Connect to any bottle or 50ml tube with OneClick caps
Color-coded tubing prevents errors in connection.
