agarose tablets
  • Eliminates weighing
  • Fast dissolving, just two minutes
  • Environmentally friendly, free from organic solvents
  • Consistent, reproducible gels
  • Enhanced resolution and clarity

Researchers trust Benchmark's Agarose LE to meet their electrophoretic
needs for a variety of applications. Now the same agarose is available
in a convenient, no mess tablet.

Agarose LE is refined in an advanced process that excludes the use of
organic solvents. The result is a cleaner end product with significantly
reduced environmental impact. The agarose can be used for analyses of
nucleic acids from 150bp to 6kbp, protein electrophoresis and various
blotting protocols.

The low EEO of the agarose promotes increased electrophoretic mobility,
yielding improved resolution and shorter run times. This also allows
macromolecules and larger particles (subcellular fragments, viruses, etc.)
to migrate more freely through the gel matrix. The consistently low EEO
reduces band distortion (caused by counterflow) that can result from
the presence of excessive sulfate-rich negative ions.

The quick dissolving EZ Pack tablet contains 0.5g (500mg) of
Agarose LE, eliminating the hands-on time and inaccuracies
normally associated with weighing. Use of the tablet is not only
convenient and cleaner, it also provides better consistency and
reproducbilty gel to gel. Gel preparation is simple - add the desired
number of tablets to electrophoresis buffer, alow to sit for two
minutes and then heat and pour as usual. The resulting gels are
highly transparent, have exceptional thermal stability (ensuring safe
and easy handling) and exhibit exceptionally low absorption of
chemical staining agents.

EZ Pack Agarose Tablets are supplied in convenient blister packs
for safe, clean dispensing.
