E-Gel® agarose gels are self-contained, pre-cast agarose gels. Each E-Gel agarose gel is ready for use with agarose, electrodes, and DNA stain (ethidium bromide or SYBR Safe™) packaged inside a dry, disposable, UV-transparent cassette. There are no gels to pour, buffers to make, staining or destaining steps to perform, or gel boxes to assemble. Just load your samples and run. E-Gel agarose gels offer excellent resolution and clarity in as little as 12 minutes and are ideal for analyzing PCR products, restriction digests, and plasmid preparations.
E-Gel agarose gels are 12-well, single comb gels that are available in a variety of formats: with SYBR Safe DNA Gel Stain or ethidium bromide, with agarose percentages suitable for general purpose (0.8%, 1.2%, and 2%) or high resolution (4%) separations.
E-Gel Single Comb and Double Comb Gels
These gels are general-use, ready-to-use gels with agarose, electrodes, and nucleic acid stain packaged inside a dry, disposable, UV-transparent cassette. They are offered with a single row of 12 sample wells, or with two rows, each containing 8 sample wells and one marker well, and are spaced for compatibility with 8-channel pipettors for easy multi-well loading.

E-Gel with SYBR Safe Gels
E-Gel with SYBR Safe Gels contain SYBR Safe DNA stain instead of ethidium bromide. The detection sensitivity of E-Gel gels with SYBR Safe stain is similar to that of gels containing ethidium bromide. Use E-Gel gels with SYBR Safe stain to:
- Minimize hazardous waste
- Eliminate the use of a strong mutagen (ethidium bromide) and reduce UV exposure
- Use blue-light transillumination to dramatically reduce DNA damage
