Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc.’s Trans-Blot® Turbo™ protein transfer system was awarded the Scientists’ Choice Award for Best New Life Science Product of 2011. The awards, presented by SelectScience, an online publication for life scientists, celebrate the latest laboratory equipment making a difference in labs. Honorees were chosen by SelectScience’s members in the research community.

More than 30,000 members of SelectScience were invited to nominate their favorite products of 2011. Nominations were narrowed down to a short list of the most popular products within each category and members were then invited to vote for a winner in each category. Honorees were announced at two major life science conferences held in April: the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and Analytica.

The Trans-Blot Turbo is a rapid, efficient, and reliable blotting system that allows researchers to transfer proteins from gel to membrane in as little as three minutes in a reproducible fashion. The system is also an integral part of Bio-Rad’s new V3 Western Workflow™, a portfolio of products that cuts time to results in half and provides quality control checkpoints throughout the immunoblotting process.

“We are honored to receive such a notable recognition from SelectScience’s highly regarded community of scientists,” said Ryan Short, Western Blotting Marketing Manager. “This award reflects Bio-Rad’s commitment to developing solutions that align with the needs of the research community.”
