Mini series electrophoresis gel units are ideal for a wide range of samples including those from plasmid preps, PCR reactions, restriction fragments, RFLP analyses etc.. Mini series units offer very fast separation of DNA and RNA restriction fragments in agarose gels.
Midi series units accommodate standard gels for both analytical and preparative studies of nucleic acids.
Maxi series units are designed for high resolution electrophoresis. Applications include DNA analysis and PCR and restriction fragment screening. Maxi plus with its massive 624 sample capability provides rapid and convenient screening of PCR products eg. HLA typing
