UltraPure™ Agarose is a polysaccharide used for size-based separation of nucleic acids in agarose gel electrophoresis applications. UltraPure™ Agarose is ideal for resolving DNA and RNA fragments from 100 bp to >30 kb. Features of UltraPure™ Agarose:

• Ideal for analysis and recovery of DNA and RNA for routine applications
• Strong gel structure allows for better handling and less breakage
• Can be used in protein electrophoresis applications such as Ouchterlony (antigen-antibody interaction assay) and radial immunodiffusion (RID) (antigen quantitation assay)

Improved packaging
The new environmentally friendly packaging uses 75% less plastic than the original bottles. This means less energy and raw material used in manufacture, and less waste in landfills. Additionally, the easy-pour spout reduces the likelihood of spills and contamination.

Performance and quality testing
The performance of UltraPure™ Agarose is evaluated to satisfy set specifications in appearance, moisture, gel strength, gelling temperature, melting temperature, sulfate content, electroendosmosis, and DNase/RNase activity.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
