PowerPac Mini Power Supply

The PowerPac Mini is our lowest-priced power supply. This dedicated little workhorse provides the energy needed to run horizontal agarose or vertical polyacrylamide electrophoresis. Simply set the voltage and run.

  • 100 V or 200 V constant
  • 200 mA maximum current
  • 40 W maximum power
  • Constant voltage output
  • Ultracompact size
PowerPac Basic Power Supply

The PowerPac Basic power supply is designed for horizontal DNA electrophoresis in agarose gels and vertical acrylamide gel electrophoresis of proteins. Its design provides simple programming and a compact, stackable case. The PowerPac Basic offers timer control, constant voltage or constant current output, real-time monitoring of both voltage and current, and pause/resume run capability.

  • Runs four cells simulataneously
  • Timer controlled
  • Fully programmable
  • CE and EN-61010 safety compliant
  • Case is stackable
PowerPac HC Power Supply

If you want to bring new power to your separations, plug into the PowerPac HC power supply. It provides 3.0 A of current and 300 W of power. In addition to running standard horizontal agarose and vertical polyacrylamide gels, the PowerPac HC power supply easily handles all your blotting applications. To help you optimize every run, the PowerPac HC power supply provides fully adjustable voltage, current, and power controls.

  • Runs up to four cells simultaneously
  • Timer controlled
  • Fully programmable
  • CE and EN-61010 safety compliant
  • LCD screen shows all parameters during run
  • Case is stackable
PowerPac Universal Power Supply

When it comes to electrical power, the most common laboratory request is for a single power supply to fit all power requirements, from mini vertical and high-throughput electrophoresis to blotting. With specifications that cover the broadest range of applications of all power supplies on the market, this PowerPac is the most universal power supply available.

  • Runs up to four cells simultaneously
  • Timer controlled
  • Fully programmable
  • CE and EN-61010 safety compliant
  • LCD screen shows all parameters during run
  • Case is stackable
PowerPac HV Power Supply

Designed for high-voltage applications, the PowerPac HV power supply can run up to four DNA sequencing cells at once. The optional temperature probe allows automatic and precise control of temperatures between 30 and 90°C during electrophoresis. The PowerPac HV uses a proprietary algorithm and circuitry to sense gel temperature and adjusts the power to remain within 2°C of the desired temperature. This function is particularly useful for DNA sequencing, where constant temperature is very important for superior band resolution and reproducibility.

  • Runs up to four cells simultaneously
  • Timer controlled
  • Fully programmable
  • CE and EN-61010 safety compliant
  • LCD screen shows all parameters during run
  • Case is stackable
