Dear technical team,
Our cusotmers purchased optiblot gel(ab119206) and I have checked itscompatibility to Bio-rad on the website.
But, when it applied to casting system of Bio-rad, there's some gap with the green gasket and optiblot gel plate,
inner buffers were leak.
I have two complaints about it and please check and let me know what the problem is.

The 8X10 gels we produce are QC tested on the Biorad Mini-Protean system (so that we are duplicating what the customer sees). We have other Biorad compatible rigs, but we do the QC on the BR rig for just that reason.
The green gasket will have a notch which locks in over the plate from a biorad gel. This gasket needs to be reversed so the gasket is smooth all round and contacts with the gel plate evenly.
Perhaps there is some unknown issue occuring here preventing your customer for successfully using the Optiblot gels with the biorad gel rigs.
