The Mini-PROTEAN® Tetra cell for handcast gels (catalog #165-8001) and PowerPac™ Basic power supply (catalog #164-5050) are bundled together in this offering.
This Mini-PROTEAN 4-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, 1 electrode assembly, 1 companion running module (to run up to 4 gels), 1 mini cell buffer dam, 2 casting stands, 4 casting frames, 5 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 1 to 4 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 Basic power supply is a high-quality power supply that offers simple programming, timer control, constant voltage or current output, and the ability to pause and resume a run. The PowerPac Basic power supply is intended for basic applications such as submerged horizontal and mini vertical gel electrophoresis but it also provides sufficient output to support the Mini Trans-Blot® cell.
