UltraPure™ Agarose-1000 is a polysaccharide (see structure) used for size-based separation of nucleic acids in agarose gel electrophoresis. UltraPure™ Agarose 1000 is specifically formulated for the high- resolution separation of small (<1,000 bp) DNA, RNA, and PCR fragments. This standard melting temperature agarose can resolve DNA fragments differing in as little as 10 bp in size. Benefits of using UltraPure™ Agarose 1000:

• Ideal for analysis and recovery of small DNA and RNA fragments
• Strong gel structure allows for better handling
• Improved clarity allows for enhanced visibility of fragments

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 1000 is evaluated to satisfy specifications in appearance, moisture, gel strength, gelling temperature, melting temperature, sulfate content, electroendosmosis, and DNase/RNase assay.

Note: UltraPure™ Agarose 10000 (Cat. No. 16550-100) is a replacement for the item previously sold under Cat. No. 10975-035.
