Pour Your Own DNA Electrophoresis Workflow

Electrophoresis reagents optimized for success

When pouring your own agarose gels, choosing high-quality agarose, smarter-sized DNA ladders, and high-sensitivity DNA stains can help you achieve optimal electrophoresis results. See Pre-cast agarose gel

Agarose gels

Agarose gels are used for DNA fragment separation and analysis. For gel preparation you will need agarose powder and electrophoresis running buffer.

Buffers

Buffers are ionic solutions with electrical conductivity that preserve the pH and enable nucleic acid mobility during electrophoresis.

For easy loading and tracking of DNA samples on agarose gels.

Invitrogen DNA ladders are available in a wide variety of size ranges (10 bp to 15 kb) and formats for different applications. The proprietary manufacturing produces high quality products that can be stored at room temperature.

DNA staining dyes are used for visualizing the nucleic acid fragments under blue or UV light.

To perform electrophoresis, a power supply, electrophoresis tank, and other accessories are required.
