The XCell SureLock® Mini-Cell allows you to run Novex® mini-gels quickly, easily, and leak-free without any clamps or grease. The XCell line of mini-cells has always distinguished itself by being simple, sturdy, and convenient. The tradition continues with the patented XCell SureLock® Mini-Cell. The incorporation of a gel tension wedge, in place of the rear wedge used on earlier models, makes the XCell SureLock® Mini-Cell the easiest-to-use mini-cell on the market.

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 (see figure). The positive locking action of the gel tension wedge ensures a trouble-free, leak-free gel run every time.

Easy set-up procedure

The XCell SureLock® Mini-Cell can be easily set up in just three simple steps (see figure). The XCell SureLock® Mini-Cell is available separately or as a part of a complete package to fit your electrophoresis needs (see table).

Upgrade your XCell II™ to an XCell SureLock® Mini-Cell

Conversion of an XCell II™ into an XCell SureLock® is easy with the SureLock® Retrofit Kit (available separately). The kit consists of a SureLock® mini-cell lid, gel tension wedge, and molded mini-gel buffer dam.
