The Invitrogen E-Gel Power Snap Electrophoresis Device is designed for fast and convenient E-Gel agarose gel electrophoresis, from DNA sample loading to gel view. With the dry precast E-Gel agarose gel technology, you can run DNA samples in as little as 10 minutes and observe sample separation in real time. It is the only benchtop device that seamlessly integrates DNA sample separation and gel visualization into one workflow.

Features of the E-Gel Power Snap Electrophoresis Device include:
• Separate DNA in as little as 10 minutes with dry precast E-Gel EX agarose gels
• View DNA sample migration in real time
• Small footprint for convenient benchtop use
• Streamlined electrophoresis system with integrated image visualization

Small, fast, and powerful
The all-in-one E-Gel Power Snap Electrophoresis Device provides everything you need for DNA gel electrophoresis and gel visualization in a small lightweight benchtop system. The system includes an electrophoresis power supply, blue-light transilluminator, and amber filter. This enables gel separation and real-time sample tracking on E-Gel agarose gels pre-stained with SYBR Safe or SYBR Gold II DNA stains. The device arrives with pre-programmed protocols for each type of compatible E-Gel agarose gel.

Unsurpassed convenience of dry precast E-Gel agarose gels
Run DNA samples in as little as 10 minutes with dry, precast, pre-stained E-Gel agarose gels. The E-Gel dry precast agarose gel technology provides speed and convenience, eliminating any need for gel preparation or staining. E-Gel agarose gels are available in a variety of gel percentage and a choice of two DNA stains. The E-Gel Power Snap Electrophoresis device is compatible with all low-throughput E-Gel precast agarose gels, including E-Gel EX, E-Gel SYBR Safe, E-Gel Go!, E-Gel CloneWell II, and E-Gel SizeSelect II gels*.

Ideal for cloning workflow
The blue light emitted by the E-Gel Power Snap Electrophoresis Device transilluminator ensures maximum possible safety to the user, and results in improved cloning efficiency over ethidium bromide/UV when used with E-Gel CloneWell II agarose gels.

Expand possibilities to image capture
The E-Gel Power Snap Electrophoresis Device, when coupled with the E Gel Power Snap Camera (available separately, Cat. No. G8200), enables instant and real-time capture of high-resolution E Gel agarose gel images on the go. The camera is directly docked to the electrophoresis unit, requiring no external power supply or connection to a desktop computer. This enables the freedom to capture images on the spot without leaving the bench.

*The E-Gel Power Snap Electrophoresis Device also supports ethidium bromide-stained E-Gel single-comb and double-comb agarose gel cassettes. The ethidium bromide-stained gels are not suitable for imaging with the E-Gel Power Snap Camera.
