Thermo Scientific™ Precise™ Tris-Glycine Gels are long shelf-life, fast run-time polyacrylamide gels for SDS-PAGE that use the popular Laemmli buffer system and commercial gel tanks to help provide outstanding protein resolution and separation.

Precise™ Tris-Glycine Gels are cast as 1 mm think mini gels in two durable plastic cassette sizes: 10 cm x 10 cm x 7 mm cassettes that fit in Novex® XCell gel tanks, 8 cm x 10 cm x 5 mm cassettes that fit in Mini-PROTEAN™ gel tanks. The gels are individually packaged in easy-to-open plastic pouches and are ready for electrophoresis with no comb or tape removal required. Following electrophoresis, the easy-open cassette design minimizes gel damage and allows gels to be removed without special tools. These Precise Gels are available in gradient (4 to 20% and 8 to 16%) and fixed (8%, 10% and 12%) acrylamide concentrations and in 10-well, 12-well and 15-well formats.

Precise Tris-Glycine gel features

  • High-performance–Tris-glycine running buffer helps produce excellent separation and high-resolution protein bands
  • Long shelf-life–up to 12-month stability helps ensures consistent performance for the duration of each package of gels
  • Easy to load–sample wells reinforced with plastic to minimize damage when loading and well-to-well contamination

In addition to Precise Tris-Glycine gels, we offer many other minigels in various formulations. Find the right one for your experiment using our interactive gel selection tool.
