E-Gel® 96 Agarose Gels are bufferless, pre-cast gels designed for fast, high-throughput DNA electrophoresis. Each gel contains 96 sample lanes and 8 marker lanes that are ideal for screening multiple PCR products, plasmid preparations, and restriction digests. The unique 96-well staggered-well format provides a 1.6 cm run length that resolves between 100 bp and 10 kb. The E-Gel® 96 loading format is compatible with multi-channel pipettors, and the most commonly used 8-, 12-, and 96-pin liquid handling robots (see figure). With 12-minute run times, up to 20,000 samples can be resolved in a single day.
Alternative format—E-Gel® 96 2% with SYBR® Safe DNA Gel Stain
E-Gel® 96 2% with SYBR® Safe offers high-throughput labs performing agarose electrophoresis the option to eliminate the use of ethidium bromide. Unlike ethidium bromide, the DNA stain most commonly incorporated into agarose gels, SYBR® Safe DNA Gel Stain is a nontoxic, nonmutagenic DNA stain that is safer for the user, safer for the environment, and can save institutional overhead costs for disposal. There is no compromise involved with switching to SYBR® Safe. It is the safer alternative to ethidium bromide.
