Invitrogen E-Gel precast agarose gels with ethidium bromide are designed for fast, convenient, and safe DNA sample electrophoresis. Each E-Gel agarose gel cassette contains all components and stain required for efficient gel separation and analysis—just load your samples and run. E-Gel agarose gels are ideal for analyzing PCR products, restriction digests, plasmid preparations, or for DNA fragment library analysis.
Features of E-Gel precast agarose gels include:
• Convenient setup
—precast E-Gel agarose gels are ready for use when you are, and do not require gel preparation or additional buffers
• Faster analysis
—separate DNA samples as little as ∼30–40 minutes
• High performance
—resolution and sample detection sensitivity are equivalent to conventional ethidium bromide-stained gelsRunning and imaging devices
E-Gel agarose gels require the Invitrogen E-Gel Power Snap Electrophoresis Device (Cat. No. G8100) for gel running.Important note:
Ethidium bromide E-Gel agarose gels are not fully compatible with all E-Gel Power Snap Electrophoresis device and camera features. Due to its use of blue-light trans-illumination, and the incompatibility of the ethidium bromide excitation spectrum with the blue-light wavelength, the real-time view mode will show very low sensitivity. For imaging of ethidium bromide, please use an imager with a UV trans-illuminator.
For the best E-Gel experience and fully functional features, please consider using E-Gel EX or E-Gel SYBR Safe-stained agarose gels.Learn more about the E-Gel Power Snap Electrophoresis System ›Available in other gel formats
E-Gel agarose gels are available in a variety of gel percentage, stain, and well formats. 12-well E-Gel agarose gels with ethidium bromide are available in 0.8%, 1%, 1.2%, and 4% gel percentages, as well as the 1% and 2% double-comb well format with 16 wells.
