What are the power supply requirements for the XCell4 SureLock Midi-Cell? Do you offer a power supply that I can use with it? Product FAQ
The XCell4 SureLock Midi-Cell should be used with an external DC power supply designed for electrophoresis. This power supply must:
- Be isolated from the ground so that the DC output is floating (safety requirement)and must be equipped with No Load or Open Circuit protection
- Be able to operate at 200 V
If you would like to simultaneously run 4 gels using the XCell4 SureLock Midi-Cell, we recommend using the ZOOM Dual Power Supply. The Low Voltage/High Current outlets can handle the voltage and current of 4 NuPAGE Bis-Tris gels (Voltage 200 V, Current ~800 mA). The PowerEase 90W Power Supply and PowerEase 500 Power Supply (discontinued as of December 31, 2013) can be used with the XCell4 SureLock Midi-Cell but the current limit of 500 mA will be reached with 2 gels (2 x ~200 mA max current at 200V). If 4 gels are run in the XCell4 SureLock Midi-Cell with these power supplies, the current will be maxed out and the run will slow down. It will take approximately twice as long to run the gels. Note: To allow connection of the covered power leads of the XCell4 SureLock Midi-Cell with certain power supplies that are not designed for use with covered or non-retractable power leads, use Invitrogen Power Supply Adapters available separately (Cat. No. ZA10001).
