The VS20 WAVE features vertical screw-clamp technology to deliver a faster set-up speed.
The VS20 Wave is designed to perform a variety of separations, ranging from first and second dimension SDS-PAGE to capillary tube gel IEF and electroblotting.
Unlike other systems whose traditional clamping configurations require adjustment of as many as 24 screws to secure just two glass plates, the VS20 WAVE insert utilises only four screws to secure as many 20 x 20cm gels.
The company claims that this vertical screw-clamp technology ensures not only much faster set-up speed it also exerts uniform pressure along the height of the glass plates to facilitate a leak-free seal.
The ergonomic WAVE-like design of the PAGE insert aids both handling and set-up, while its built-in inner buffer chamber allows set-up to be completed without the inclusion of a top tank or upper buffer chamber.
A detachable cooling coil is supplied enabling the WAVE to be connected to a re-circulating chiller for uniform, trouble-free electrophoresis and this also permits runs to be performed faster at higher voltage.
Other features include:
Notched glass plates with bonded spacers supplied with WAVETETRAD systems allow gel capacity to be doubled from 2 to 4, while dummy plate allows single gels to be run
Bonded spacers and combs colour coded for thickness
Selection of combs allow separation of up to 192 samples
