  • The gel types include preparative and analytical gels.
  • Special gel cassettes can be used for the economical isolation of DNA fragments of desired length.
  • Typical application is the sizing of DNA for Illumina sample prep for sequencing. 
  • For DNA size selection, cassettes are available from 0.8% to 4%. Gels can be pre-stained with ethidium bromide or SYBR dye.
  • The device has a built-in blue light transilluminator to visualize DNA with minimum damage.
  • Cassette gels can run up to 16 samples.
