The XCell SureLock Mini-Cell is a vertical mini-protein gel electrophoresis system compatible with all Invitrogen mini precast gels and Surecast handcast gels. The Mini-Cell is simple, sturdy, and easy to use. Rather than using clamps, the system incorporates the use of a gel tension wedge to make setup quick and convenient.

How the system works
The XCell SureLock Mini-Cell holds gels firmly with a simple gel tension wedge. When the lever on the gel tension wedge is pushed forward into the locked position, an even, horizontal force is generated. This seals the gel/buffer core assembly firmly into position in the lower buffer chamber. The positive locking action of the gel tension wedge ensures a trouble-free, leak-free gel run every time.

The XCell SureLock Mini-Cell can be used for wet transfers using the XCell II Blot Module. The XCell II Blot Module is used in place of the gel/buffer core assembly. It requires less than 200 mL of transfer buffer for western, southern, and northern transfers. Tough platinized titanium and stainless steel electrodes create a uniform electrical field without clamps or hinged gel holders. Maximum blot size is 9 cm x 9 cm.
