Horizontal and Vertical Gel Electrophoresis Equipment from Syngene
29 May 2019
Syngene launches a range of robust horizontal and vertical gel electrophoresis equipment designed to save time and energy by providing an easy to use, versatile platform to run consistent quality DNA and protein gels for visualisation in its imaging systems.
With a wide range of tank and tray sizes, as well as many comb options, the units can run a variety of PAGE and agarose gel types and sizes, all of which are compatible with visualisation in Syngene imaging systems. Featuring sturdy injection moulded construction and corrosion-resistant platinum electrodes, all the tanks in the range offer a robust, leak proof-environment, guaranteeing user safety and long product life.
The four sizes of horizontal gel units, known as the SynMini, SynMidi, SynChoice and SynMaxi, enable scientists to run gels from 7cm x 7cm up to 20cm x 20cm. Each tank comes with two or three (for the SynChoice) sizes of indentation free, UV transparent gel trays and a choice of combs in four different thicknesses. These combined features are designed to make them a cost-effective and versatile solution for running DNA and RNA gels currently available.
Syngene’s SynPAGE and SynWave vertical electrophoresis tanks come in two sizes and can be used with 10cm x 10cm or 20cm x 20cm gels to run up to four hand cast (additional plates required) or two commercial pre-cast gels from any major supplier. They feature glass plates with permanently bonded spacers that are easy to seal between pressure bars to guarantee consistent gel thickness and leak free casting. The Syngene vertical electrophoresis tanks can additionally be fitted with a modular blotting insert by scientists wishing to transfer their proteins to Western blots.
