Mini-PROTEAN® 3 Dodeca™ Cell



Setting Up and Running Mini-PROTEAN® TGX™ Precast Gels
Mini-PROTEAN® vs. Novex Gel Cassettes
Preparing and Opening the Mini-PROTEAN® Cassette

The Mini-PROTEAN 3 Dodeca cell runs up to 12 mini gels under identical conditions in just 35 minutes. Eliminate gel-to-gel variation by hand casting gels 12 at a time using the Mini-PROTEAN 3 Multi-Casting Chamber and Model 485 Gradient Former. Alternatively, use Mini-PROTEAN or Ready Gel® Precast Gels for added convenience and reproducibility.

Features of the Mini-PROTEAN 3 Dodeca cell include:

  • Capacity to run up to 12 gels simultaneously
  • Built-in cooling coil that attaches to an external refrigerated circulator to prevent overheating and ensure high resolution results
  • Stirbar capability that helps maintain uniform buffer tank temperature for run reproducibility
  • Easy assembly facilitated by a patented* electrophoresis clamping frame
  • Convenient buffer draining via the built-in quick-connect drain port
  • Compact footprint that saves bench space

* U.S. patents 6,436,262.
