About the Mini Gel Tank The Mini Gel Tank is compatible with all Invitrogen Novex, NuPAGE, and Bolt mini gels. Each Mini Gel Tank can accommodate up to two gels per run. The unique tank design enables convenient, side-by-side gel loading and enhanced viewing during use. Run times may vary depending on buffer conditions and power supplies being used.
About Novex Tricine gels Novex Tricine gels provide separation of low molecular weight proteins and peptides. The Tricine system is a modification of the tris-glycine discontinuous buffer system developed by Schaegger and von Jagow specifically for peptides and low molecular weight proteins. In this system the tricine replaces the glycine in the running buffer, resulting in more efficient stacking and de-stacking of low molecular weight proteins and higher resolution of smaller peptides.
