Dual plate, mini and maxi format
10 x 10 Mini
The preferred unit for routine mini
protein electrophoresis, the omniPAGE mini is constructed using
the latest injection moulding manufacturing techniques. This gives a
high quality, low cost product with unsurpassed finish, durability and strength.
The unit incorporates a sealing system which is compatible
with all major types of 8 x 10cm and 10 x 10cm precast gel.
Gel casting and running utilise the same insert, no transfer
of glass plates during gel casting is necessary.
The insert contains just one screw per clamping bar side
allowing very rapid set up of both hand cast and precast
gels. Ultra soft silicone seals and pressure bars which
surround the glass plates guarantee leak proof gel casting.
2mm thick glass plates prevent
breakage and have bonded spacers for convenience. Accessory
electroblotting and tube gel
modules are available which use the same outer tank and
20 x 20 cm Maxi new Wave single clamp system
The new VS20 WAVE Maxi System is the latest product innovation for large format vertical gel electrophoresis. Designed to perform a variety of separations, including first and second-dimension SDS-PAGE, native, preparative, gradient and high-resolution nucleic acid electrophoresis, plus capillary tube gel IEF and electroblotting, the VS20 WAVE is one of the most versatile maxi vertical systems available.
By introducing innovative, new vertical screw-clamp technology within the PAGE insert only four screws are now necessary to secure as many 20x20cm gels. This gives the VS20 WAVE Maxi the selective advantage of a much faster set up speed compared to competitor products whose traditional clamping configurations require as many as 24 screws to secure just two glass plates. In addition, the WAVEs vertical screw-clamp configuration distributes pressure evenly along the height of the gel rather than in the centre to eliminate plate bowing and gel compression, but still maintains a leak-proof seal during casting; while the ergonomic wave-like design of the PAGE insert aids both handling and set up.
Whatever your requirements are the WAVE can be made to meet them. Regardless of whether it is running 2 or 4 gels, electroblotting, and IEF using capillary tube gels or IPG strips, all of these techniques may be performed using the same omni-purpose unit while retaining the benefits of large format electrophoresis, such as extended separation distances, greater sample throughput and superior resolution.
