Recommendations
UltraPure™ Low Melting Point Agarose is a polysaccharide used for size-based separation of nucleic acids in agarose gel electrophoresis applications. UltraPure™ Low Melting Point Agarose is ideal for resolving DNA and RNA fragments and for the recovery of nucleic acid fragments after electrophoresis, as it melts at 65.5°C (below the melting point of most nucleic acids). The solution remains fluid at 37°C and will set rapidly at temperatures below 25°C. Benefits of using UltraPure™ Low Melting Point Agarose:

• Ideal for analysis and recovery of DNA and RNA for routine applications
• Strong gel structure allows for better handling and less breakage
• Ideal for a variety of applications such as in-gel manipulation, tissue and cell culture, and viral plaque assays
• Can also 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 (see figure). 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 specifications in appearance, moisture, gel strength, gelling temperature, melting temperature, sulfate content, electroendosmosis, and DNase/RNase assay.

Note: UltraPure™ Low Melting Point Agarose (Cat. No. 16520-100) is a replacement for the item previously sold under Cat. No. 15517-022.
