The CSL Multi Sub range of Horizontal Gel Units offers the most versatile solution for DNA and RNA agarose gel electrophoresis currently available. Each unit offering an unsurpassed combination of economy of gel and buffer volume, with gel size and sample number versatility. Gel size and sample number requirements can be exactly matched in each unit with the option of at least two and up to four gel tray sizes per unit. This eliminates the requirement for multiple gel tanks for changes in gel size or application.

Casting dams form a tight seal over the tray's open
ends for gel casting

All units contain removable UV transparent trays with at least two tray options per unit. Complete systems can be purchased with one, two or all tray options.The trays contain an easy to use leak proof plug and go - gel casting dams. This allows gels to be rapidly cast whilst the unit is in use for gel running. Gel trays also have the option of traditional tape casting and contain no indentations or casting gate grooves in the tray to interfere with sample progression.Loading guides are included as standard for easy well identification and sample loading.

Included as standard are corrosion resistant, 99.99% pure platinum electrodes and lid connectors compatible with most major power supplies. The units easy to maintain with inexpensive and easy to replace slot electrodes.

Four sizes of Unit in The Multi Sub Horizontal range are available:

Multi Sub Mini
This is the smallest unit in the range, designed for the researcher with low to medium numbers of samples. The small gel size maximizes run economy but does not compromise versatility as two tray options are available – 7 x 7cm and 7 x 10cm, and combs ranging from preparative up to 16 samples. Simply by altering the gel tray or comb, this compact unit is capable of resolving up to 48 different samples, prepping 1ml of sample or separating sample bands over a distance of 9cm.
Configuration Gel Trays
MSMINI-7 7 x 7 cm
MSMINI-10 7x10 cm
MSMINI-DUO both sizes
2 combs 8 samples x 1mm
Runs up to 16 samples
Combs available:

Thicknesses 0.75, 1.0, 1.5 & 2.0 mm

Multi Sub Midi
With Gel tray options of 10 x 7cm and 10 x 10cm this unit has been designed for routine horizontal gel electrophoresis. Extending only the width of this unit allows more samples to be resolved per gel than the Multi Sub Mini without a significant increase in buffer or gel volumes.
A maximum of 80 samples per gel can be resolved making this unit ideal for those routinely checking high sample numbers over short to medium gel run lengths.

Multi Sub Maxi
Primarily designed for resolution of high numbers of samples such as from Cloning or PCR. Allows ultra high-resolution separations over extended runs. Tray sizes correspond to standard blotter sizes allowing easy sample transfer onto a membrane for further analysis. There are two tray sizes – 20 x 20cm and a half-length 20 x 10cm - with multi-channel pipette compatible combs up to 40 sample allow rapid loading of up to 360 samples per gel.

Multi Sub Choice
The most versatile horizontal gel electrophoresis unit currently available. Choose from 5 tray options
15 x 7cm, 15 x 10cm, 15 x 15cm, 15 x 20cm, 15 x 25cm as well as the "trio" option allowing you to choose one, two or all three gel length options at the time of purchase. Maximizing comb and tray options allow up to 350 samples to be resolved per gel. The 15cm total run length allows restriction fragment or other close MW sample bands to be easily separated and identified. Speed loading is accomplished using 10, 14, 16, 18, 28 and 30 Multi-channel pipette compatible combs. (up to 7 combs on 15 cm tray)

Multi Sub Screen
Designed for rapid screening of very large numbers of Clonal or PCR samples, the multiSUB Screen horizontal gel unit has a 672 maximum sample capacity per gel. This allows loading and analysis of exactly seven 96 well format micro titre plates.

The large gel run length of 32cm also allows resolution of samples over a long distance for separation of complex sample bands such as in restriction fragment analysis. The unit is available with a full length tray or with other tray length options of 16 or 24cm so that the user’s exact requirements can be matched.

In addition to options for single length gel trays, multiSUB Screen is available with all three gel tray lengths to provide the maximum in flexibility, versatility and value. Buffer recirculation ports are included as standard to allow enhanced resolution over extended runs while loading guides enhance well visibility for easy sample loading.
