Ready Gel® TBE-Urea Precast Gels



Migration Pattern for Ready Gel® TBE-Urea Gels

The banding patterns indicate the optimal separation range (by bp) for each acrylamide percentage in combinations with the specified buffer system. Migrations are based on the leading dye front being run to the bottom of a gel.

Discontinued Product
A number of Ready Gel gels have been discontinued and replaced with Mini-PROTEAN® or Criterion™ gels. However, we will continue to provide support for customers using Ready Gel gels.

See the complete list of discontinued Ready Gel precast gels and corresponding replacement gels.


TBE-urea gels maintain denaturing conditions for analysis of single-stranded DNA and RNA. Nucleic acids between 60 and 200 bases are resolved as sharp, distinct bands. Applications include oligonucleotide purity analysis, RNase protection assays, and northern blotting.

Ready Gel® precast gels are designed for the traditional 8 x 10 cm mini vertical format. Proteins and nucleic acids can be separated by electrophoresis on Ready Gel precast gels using the Mini-PROTEAN® Tetra electrophoresis cell (1–4 gels) or, for high-throughput applications, the Mini-PROTEAN® 3 Dodeca™ cell system (1–12 gels).
