    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.
