Agarose Powders and Precast Gels

Print

Bio-Rad offers a complete line of agarose powders and precast gels, allowing you to choose the product that is convenient for performing nucleic acid electrophoresis in your classroom.

Certified Molecular Biology Agarose Powder

Bio-Rad's Certified™ molecular biology agarose, a special agarose formulation for exceptional DNA separation and more durable gels, provides the sharpest resolution of fragments of 20–20,000 base pairs (bp). The gels are ideal for all teaching laboratory applications: they are easy to handle, even at low agarose percentages, and are recommended for the low-percentage (0.8–3.0%) gels required for DNA fingerprinting, PCR, or restriction digest analysis.

Certified PCR Agarose Powder

Certified PCR agarose is recommended for separation of DNA fragments ≤1,000 bp. This high-strength agarose forms gels that are easy to handle and that remain flexible even at high gel percentages, which minimize the risk of cracking or breaking. PCR agarose, unlike GQT products with similar sieving properties, is a standard-gelling-temperature agarose, so it is faster and easier to prepare.

Certified PCR Low-Melt Agarose Powder

This agarose has a high sieving capacity and yields excellent resolution of fragments ≤1,000 bp in a low-melt or preparative format. This agarose is ideal for digestion by agarose and for all in-gel applications.

Precast Agarose Gels

ReadyAgarose™ gels are individually packaged precast agarose gels. The UV-transparent trays backing ReadyAgarose gels lock into Mini-Sub® cell GT and ReadySub-Cell™ GT electrophoresis chambers for ease of use. These gels provide resolution of nucleic acids from 20–20,000 bp.

Key features:

  • UV-transparent tray with fluorescent lane numbers and ruler
  • Tray locks into Bio-Rad electrophoresis cells of corresponding size
  • Available in two formats: mini (7 x 10 cm) and wide mini (15 x 10 cm)
  • Mini gel fits most manufacturers' mini gel boxes
  • Prepared with TAE or TBE buffer
  • Gel percentages for optimal resolution (1.0% for 200 bp–10 kb; 3.0% for 20 bp–1 kb)
  • Room temperature shipment and storage
  • One-year shelf life
