Default Opinions about Bio-Rad PowerPac Basic Power Supply



Is this power module suitable for western-blotting transfers? Or do I
need sth more powerful? Any reccommendations? How about running 2
transfers simultaneosly (2 chambers x 2 membranes)?

Best wishes, Lechu

Yes. Reasonabley cheap, simple and very convenient.


Depends.


PowerPac Basic is rated 400 mA, which puts right on the edge
when running 2 transfer modules at the same time, so it's
not practical. Bio-Rad has higher power version of it they
call "PowerPac Basic HC". It handles 1000 mA, so parallel
transfers are no problem. Many parallel gel rigs are not a
problem with either.

We use the power pack and it is fine... except that it can become quite
noisey because it is fan cooled. We have had a faulty unit replaced
because of this. The power pack worked fine, but the noise was very
annoying - The fans are quite cheap.

Wow. I guess it is too noisy in our lab. I have it sitting on my bench
and never noticed a noise coming from its fan.

I meant that the faulty one was too loud. It's fan had come loose so it
constantly made intermittent whining and buzzing sounds as the fan spun
off-axis!

As they are when working properly, I think they're louder than all of
our other power supplies, but not intolerable.

Cheers,

Scott.
