Additional Information
The all-in-one Invitrogen E-Gel Power Snap Electrophoresis System is designed for fast and convenient E-Gel agarose gel electrophoresis, from DNA sample loading to gel image. With 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 system that seamlessly integrates DNA sample separation and gel imaging into one workflow.

Features of the E-Gel Power Snap Electrophoresis system include:
• Streamline electrophoresis and image capture with an all-in-one system
• Separate DNA in as little as 10 minutes with dry precast E-Gel agarose gels
• View and capture DNA samples in real time
• Designed for efficient and convenient benchtop use

Small, fast, and powerful
The all-in-one E-Gel Power Snap Electrophoresis System provides everything you need for DNA gel electrophoresis and gel imaging in a small lightweight benchtop system. The electrophoresis device includes a 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 electrophoresis device arrives with pre-programmed protocols for each type of available E-Gel agarose gel.

Instant image capture
Capture high-resolution E-Gel agarose gel images on the go with the included easy-to-use E Gel Power Snap Camera. The camera is directly docked to the electrophoresis device, 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.

Made for convenience
The E-Gel Power Snap Camera touch screen and on-board software provides an intuitive interface for quick gel image capture and editing. Store images using the Power Snap internal memory storage through months of camera use or easily transfer the images to an external USB memory device.

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 pre-cast agarose gel technology provides speed and convenience by eliminating any need for gel preparation or staining. E-Gel agarose gels are available in a variety of gel percentages and with a choice of two DNA stains.

The E-Gel Power Snap Electrophoresis System 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.

Learn more about use of E-Gel CloneWell II agarose gels for a fast and efficient cloning workflow.

*The E-Gel Power Snap Electrophoresis System 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.
