The Mini-PROTEAN® Tetra cell for handcast gels (catalog #165-8001) and PowerPac™ HV power supply (catalog #164-5056) are bundled together in this offering.
This Mini-PROTEAN four-gel vertical electrophoresis system is used for casting and running 1.0 mm thickness gels. The system comes with a tank, lid with power cables, one electrode assembly, one companion running module (to run up to four gels), one mini cell buffer dam, two casting stands, four casting frames, five 10-well combs, and 1 set of glass plates (5 short glass plates and 5 spacer glass plates).
The versatile, easy-to-use Mini-PROTEAN Tetra cell is ideal for vertical mini gel electrophoresis. This electrophoresis cell accommodates one to four Mini-PROTEAN precast or handcast gels. The Mini-PROTEAN Tetra cell eliminates tedious assembly procedures and has a patented sealing mechanism* that prevents assembly errors during handcasting.
The PowerPac HV power supply supports an output of 5,000 V, 500 mA, and 400 W, which allows its use for all high-voltage applications, including low-current applications in the microampere range. With its 400 W output, the PowerPac HV power supply offers enough power to run the most demanding isoelectric focusing (IEF) experiments or up to four DNA sequencing gels simultaneously. Researchers can easily transfer run data from anywhere in the laboratory using the built-in wireless IR capability. Data can be sent first to a PDA and then to a PC or directly to a PC with a peripheral IR receiving device.
