Product Details

  • Produces a 30 cm x 40 cm gel that fits easily on a standard 14 in x 17 in X-ray film
  • Integral aluminum plate for even heat distribution to minimise band curvation (“smiling”)
  • Removable lower buffer tray with a separate chamber for collecting the buffer from the upper reservoir, eliminating the need to move the apparatus for buffer disposal
  • Built-in integral clamps hold the gel in place
  • Unique gasket sealing system ensures leak-free operation without grease or notched plates
  • Safety interlock lid
  • Additional combs and apparatus components available separately

Sequencing Gel Electrophoresis System
The Model S2 Sequencing Gel Electrophoresis Apparatus is designed for vertical polyacrylamide gel separations of oligo- and polynucleotides, nucleic acid sequencing, genotyping and polymorphic studies.
