    Overlay Agarose
    Overlay agarose saves time in setting up second-dimension SDS-PAGE samples. Bromophenol blue tracking dye is incorporated into these solutions to allow monitoring of electrophoresis runs.

    Detergent for IEF
    Detergents are used in electrophoresis when it is necessary to disrupt protein-lipid or protein-protein interactions. SDS, Tween 20, Triton X-100 and CHAPS solutions are available.

    Reducing and Alkylating Agents
    Reducing agents are commonly used during sample preparation to cleave disulfide bond crosslinks within proteins and between protein subunits. DTT, TBP and iodoacetamide are offered.
