"I have tried quite a number of electrophoretic transfer units over the last 15 years, including tank and semi-dry styles. hands-down favorite unit is the Genie Blotter from Idea Scientific Company. ...I cannot think of any negatives for this piece of equipment. It is reasonably priced, easy to set-up and use, generates excellent blots of outstanding uniformity, and Idea Scientific offers great technical support. All-in-all, a very useful, solid laboratory tool."
Michael Campa Ph.D. Duke University Medical Center

"Dear Idea Scientific
I just purchased a Jumbo Genie blotter (plus power supply) and used it for the first time. I was amazed at the results. Perfect transfer, no background and a great signal. It is incredibly easy to set up and will save my lab hundreds of man hours a year. Congrats on an excellent product. I will be sure to reference your product in the many publications that will benefit from its use."

Dr. Mark Farman, Associate Professor, University of Kentucky

"I am glad you guys are still producing your great products! I started using your stuff while at Oregon State University, and still use two of your Mini-Genies for all of our westerns! Several universities and companies later, I have found myself in need of some gel drying parts and was happy to see that I can still get drying frames from you guys. Just wanted to say hello again and let you know that the Genie outperforms every other blotter that I have tried."
Dylan Bulseco Ph.D., Biosensor group, Sensor Technologies

"We have received the things we have ordered and have already used them in the lab....Just wanted to say thanks for your speed and efficiency!!"

To whom it may concern,
This is a letter to the customer service department of your company, and it is unlike the letters I am usually forced to write to companies. I would like to commend your company and it's people on excellent customer service and satisfaction. Ya'll are one of the few companies that appreciates the business that your customers give you, and you aren't afraid to show it. With every single order I have placed with Idea Scientific, our lab has received something for free!!! We absolutely love being treated so wonderfully and it keeps us coming back to you with our business!!! We also receive our products in a very timely manner with no hassle, and with other companies this is not usally the case. With every opportunity we are given, we promote your products to other labs here on campus and will continue to do so. Thank you all so much for the outstanding job that you do!!!!
