E-Gel® 48 Gels are pre-cast, ready-to-use, 48-well agarose gels designed for medium-throughput resolution of DNA fragments. Each gel contains 48 sample wells and 4 marker wells in 1%, 2%, or 4% high-resolution agarose with a 3.2 cm run length. The various agarose percentages are used to separate DNA fragments of different sizes:
1% agarose gels—DNA fragments between 400 bp and 10 kb
2% agarose gels—DNA fragments between 50 bp and 3 kb
4% agarsoe gels—DNA fragments between 10 bp and 400 bp
Using E-Gel® 48 Gels
Load the E-Gel® 48 gel with a multi-channel pipettor or robotic liquid handling systems for increased throughput. E-Gel® 48 gels run in mother and daughter E-Base™ integrated power supplies. DNA bands resolve clearly (see figure) in just 20 minutes.
