The MULTI-PRINT™ registration accessory VP 382 to the MULTI-BLOT™ Replicator system allows you to make multiple "foot print" high density arrays on large membranes without overlapping a single blot. Six "foot prints" of four by 384 high density blots (1,536) can be placed on a single 30 cm by 30 cm nylon membrane (cut from a 30 cm by 3 m roll -VP 503) for a total of 9,216.  The MULTI-PRINTS are held in place on the membrane by double sticky tape on the bottom of the MULTI-PRINT™.  This double sticky tape is already attached to the MULTI-PRINT™ and has a special high tack/low tack double character that will release from the membrane without tearing it.  Replacement double sticky tape is available as the VP 435.

 
 
 


We also sell 22 cm x 32 cm precut nylon sheets (VP 504V) and 10 cm x 15 cm precut nylon sheets (VP 502).  High density arrays on large membranes can also be made using 48 and 96 Pin MULTI-BLOT™ Replicators on the 3 x 3 alignment hole side of the frame.  We recommend that a blotting paper such as VP 521V or Whatman paper be placed under the membrane prior to blotting.

The VP 382 MULTI-PRINT™ was designed to work with both 96 pin and 384 pin Replicators.  The side with 9 alignment holes spaced 3 mm apart is meant to be used with 96 pin Replicators to make a 864 spot array.  You don't have to use all 9 alignment holes in making your array, you can customize the array to fit your experimental design.  The side of the MULTI-PRINT™ with 4 alignment holes spaced 2.25 mm apart is meant to be used with 384 pin Replicators to make a 1536 spot array.

The VP 382D MULTI-PRINT™ was designed to work only with 96 pin Replicators.  The side with 9 alignment holes spaced 3 mm apart is meant to make a 864 spot array.  The side with 4 alignment holes spaced 4.5 mm apart is meant to make a 384 spot array. You don't have to use all the alignment holes in making your array, you can customize the array to fit your experimental design.  If you are transferring DNA, cDNA or other materials in hydrophobic solutions you will find that our new V&P Pin Cleaning Solution treatment of the pins will greatly increase the precision of delivery.  For an explanation see the FAQ page and the V&P Pin Cleaning Solution page.

  High Density Multi-Print™

     
 


VP 382B

     
 


A high density 4 x 4 alignment hole MULTI-PRINT™ -VP 382B  registers 96 pin MULTI-BLOT™ Replicators to sheet membranes to make 1536 high density spot arrays.  It has two sets of 16 alignment holes spaced 2.25 mm apart on the front frame and two sets of 1 alignment holes on the rear frame

For ultra-high density arrays (3456 spots/footprint) see our Vicki Registration System. 

The MULTI-PRINTS are held in place on the membrane by double sticky tape on the bottom of the MULTI-PRINT™.  This double sticky tape is already attached to the MULTI-PRINT™ and has a special high tac/low tac double character that will release from the membrane without tearing it.  Replacement double sticky tape is available as the VP 435.

The MULTI-PRINT™ provides an efficient way of making multiple identical gridded libraries or cDNA expression arrays to send to other laboratories for testing.  With the price of membranes so high, here is a way to dramatically cut your costs.  Large libraries and complex screening are managed with ease using the MULTI-PRINT™ registration system.

 
 
 
 
 
The MULTI-PRINT™ registers 96 and 384 pin MULTI-BLOT™ Replicators to sheet membranes. It has two sets of 9 alignment holes on the front frame and two sets of 4 alignment holes on the rear frame
 
  VP 382
The high density MULTI-PRINT™ registers 96 pin MULTI-BLOT™ Replicators to sheet membranes. It has two sets of 16 alignment holes on the front frame and two sets of 1 hole on the rear frame
 
  VP 382B
The D model MULTI-PRINT™ registers only 96 pin MULTI-BLOT™ Replicators to sheet membranes. It has two sets of 9 alignment holes on the front frame and two sets of 4 alignment holes on the rear frame
