Invitrogen protein gel chemistries

The choice of whether to use one chemistry or another depends on the abundance of the target protein, the size of the protein, and the downstream application.

For separation of a broad range of proteins, two chemistries, Bis-Tris and Tris-glycine, have been optimized for performance and long shelf life.

Select Bis-Tris gel chemistry for low abundance target proteins or when downstream applications require high protein integrity, such as posttranslational modification analysis, mass spectrometry, or sequencing. Our Invitrogen Bolt Bis-Tris Plus Mini Gels build on the legacy of the highly referenced Invitrogen NuPAGE Bis-Tris Gels.

To separate high-abundance proteins, select our robust Invitrogen Novex Tris-Glycine Gels, which offer maximum protein separation and crisp, straight bands.

Tris-acetate gel chemistry, offered by Invitrogen NuPAGE Tris-Acetate Gels, is recommended for the separation of high molecular weight proteins up to 500 kDa. Novex Tricine Gels are designed for the separation of low molecular weight proteins and peptides. 

Mini Gel Tank: One tank, 181 gels

Our unique Mini Gel Tank is designed for increased usability so you can run a variety of different gel types. The Mini Gel Tank is compatible with all Bolt, NuPAGE and Novex mini gels and can accommodate up to two gels per run. The streamlined, side-by-side tank design configuration enables convenient sample loading and enhanced viewing during use.

Transfer and detection

All our protein gels are compatible with the Mini Blot Module, Pierce Power Blotter, iBlot 2 Gel Transfer Device, iBind Western Device, and iBind Flex Western Device for optimal transfer and detection of proteins.
