Description

The PROTEAN® II xi and XL multi-cells offer up to 6-gel capacity to ensure reproducibility for medium-throughput laboratories:

  • Efficient cooling necessary for high-power 2-D runs is provided by 2 cooling coils and 3 cooling cores
  • High-power runs enable rapid separations with minimal protein diffusion and sharper protein spots

The cooling system requires a refrigerated circulating bath and operation at 4°C for optimal results.

Customize your PROTEAN II xi multi-cell system for any application, starting with the basic PROTEAN II xi multi-cell:

  • Choose the length of gel and the comb, glass plates, and cooling system that best fit your applications
  • Convert to the PROTEAN II XL multi-cell for a wider format cell that accommodates 17 cm IPG strips
