Description

Description

TGX FastCast premixed acrylamide solutions bring all the benefits of TGX gel chemistry to handcast polyacrylamide gels. TGX (Tris-Glycine eXtended) chemistry retains Laemmli-like separation characteristics while using a standard Tris-glycine running buffer system. Protein samples in the gel can be separated in only 20 minutes. TGX FastCast premixed acrylamide solutions for hand casting are available in the most commonly used cross-linking ratios for PAGE systems.

Features and Benefits of TGX FastCast Acrylamide Solutions

  • Handcast gels ready to run in as little as 30 min
  • Long shelf life — handcast gels remain fresh for up to 4 weeks at 4°C
  • Electrophoresis run times as short as 20 min using Mini-PROTEAN Tetra or Criterion Cells
  • Efficient protein transfers in as little as 3 min using the Trans-Blot Turbo Transfer System

Applications and Uses of TGX FastCast Acrylamide Solutions

  • 1-D polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis for protein separation
  • Accurate molecular weight estimation
  • Robust separation for complex samples

Bio-Rad Gel Electrophoresis Systems

Gel handcasting equipment and electrophoresis cells are offered in mini and midi gel formats. See the electrophoresis system selection guide for more details.

Mini gel systems:

Preconfigured Mini-PROTEAN Tetra Cells can be ordered with the following features:

4-gel cell with 2 casting stands, 4 casting frames, 10-well combs, 5 short plates, and 5 spacer plates

See the Tetra cell bundle selection guide for bundles. To configure your own electrophoresis cell, order the four-gel Mini-PROTEAN Tetra Cell (1658004) and select a casting module from the Accessories tab.

Midi gel systems:

Criterion and Criterion Dodeca Cells use integral cassettes for gel hand casting. 1.0 mm thick gel casting sets are available in various comb configurations:
