The XCell4 SureLock™ Midi-Cell Electrophoresis System's unique design allows you to quickly and easily perform simultaneous vertical electrophoresis of 1-4 midi-gels without leaking, resulting in consistent performance. The XCell4 SureLock™ Midi-Cell is built with tough plastic material to boost durability and features a specially designed lid to enhance user safety.
XCell4 SureLock™ Midi-Cell Electrophoresis System Overview
The XCell4 SureLock™ Midi-Cell Electrophoresis System consists of a Lower Buffer Chamber, two Buffer Cores, Buffer Dam, Displacement Dam, and a lid with cables (Figure 1).
Electrophoresis of proteins on midi-gels in the XCell4 SureLock™ Midi-Cell is performed after assembling each Buffer Core with 2 midigels or a Buffer Core with a midi-gel and a Buffer Dam. The Buffer Core/gel assembly is inserted into the Lower Buffer Chamber and is sealed using a positive locking mechanism that seals the Buffer Core/gel assembly firmly into position and ensures leak-free electrophoresis.
The Buffer Core/gel assembly creates separate upper buffer chambers for each gel and a common lower buffer chamber shared by all gels. The lid is placed onto the Midi-Cell and fits on the Midi-Cell in only one orientation to prevent incorrect connection to the electrodes. The unique design of the XCell4 SureLock ™ Midi-Cell evenly dissipates heat resulting in consistent performance of all gels without the need for any external cooling device. The Buffer Core electrical poles are color-coded for easy, intuitive assembly.
