Gibco® 4% Agarose is an autoclaved, high purity, low melting point gel designed for plaque assays and the purification of baculovirus. The 4% Agarose Gel melts at 65 – 70°C and remains fluid at 37°C. When diluted with concentrated insect cell culture medium, Gibco® 4% Agarose produces a gel firm enough to immobilize local infections, yet ductile enough to allow for the efficient removal of plaques for clonal expansion.
