* Mini-Sub cell systems purchased before 1996 (Mini-Sub DNA cell) require casting tray (catalog #170-4330). This tray is not compatible with the Mini-Sub cell GT system.
** Allows casting gels in the cell using casting gates; 7 x 10 gels can be cast with a gel caster.

Hand Casting Options for a Variety of Gel Sizes

Two accessories are available for hand casting with the Sub-Cell family of electrophoresis cells: gel casters and casting gates. Gel casters offer the flexibility of accommodating several different-sized gel trays. These are available for the entire line of Sub-Cell systems. Casting gates, available in specific sizes for each cell, offer the convenience of casting directly in the Sub-Cell cells.

Bio-Rad offers a range of mini horizontal electrophoresis chambers to resolve DNA fragments on either handcast agarose gels or ReadyAgarose precast gels. These cells include a buffer tank, safety lid with cables, and leveling bubble.

Mini-Sub Cell GT Cell

Fast and flexible, the Mini-Sub cell GT cell is our most popular classroom gel box. The Mini-Sub cell GT cell holds either a 7 x 7 cm or a 7 x 10 cm gel tray. A 10 cm agarose gel poured with two 8-well combs easily accommodates two student teams at a time. At 100 V, this cell resolves DNA fragments from 20–20,000 base pairs in just under 30 min.

Mini ReadySub-Cell GT Cell

The mini ReadySub-Cell GT gel box is similar to the Mini-Sub cell GT chamber but is dedicated to running ReadyAgarose precast gels for economy, convenience, and consistency. ReadyAgarose gel trays lock into the ReadySub-Cell GT chambers so that the gels will not move or float during electrophoresis runs. The mini ReadySub-Cell GT cell does not include casting gates, tray, or combs.
