Find the right welcome pack gel chemistry for your research needs

The choice of whether to use one chemistry or another depends on the abundance of the target protein, the size of the protein, and the downstream application.

For separation of a broad range of proteins, two chemistries, Bis-Tris and Tris-glycine, have been optimized for performance and long shelf life. Select Bis-Tris gel chemistry for low abundance target proteins or when downstream applications require high protein integrity, such as posttranslational modification analysis, mass spectrometry, or sequencing. Our Invitrogen Bolt Bis-Tris Plus Mini Gels build on the legacy of the highly referenced Invitrogen NuPAGE Bis-Tris Gels and have a wedge-shaped sample well for loading up to 2X greater sample volumes.

To separate high-abundance proteins, select our robust Invitrogen Novex Tris-Glycine Mini Gels or Novex Tris-Glycine Plus Midi Gels, which offer maximum protein separation and crisp, straight bands. Tris-acetate gel chemistry, offered by Invitrogen NuPAGE Tris-Acetate Gels, is recommended for the separation of high molecular weight proteins up to 500 kDa. Novex Tricine Gels are available in a mini gel format and are designed for the separation of low molecular weight proteins and peptides.

Mini or midi gel tank?

The choice of mini of midi tank depends on your sample throughput needs. Invitrogen mini gels are available with up to 15 sample wells and Invitrogen midi gels are available with up to 26 sample wells. Our unique Mini Gel Tank is designed for increased usability so you can run a variety of gel types. The Mini Gel Tank is compatible with all Bolt, NuPAGE and Novex mini gels and can accommodate up to two gels per run. The streamlined, side-by-side tank design configuration enables convenient sample loading and enhanced viewing during use.

If you have higher throughput sample processing needs, the Invitrogen SureLock Tandem Midi Gel Tank is designed for easy and consistent vertical protein gel electrophoresis of 1 or 2 Invitrogen midi gels. When paired with SureLock Midi Transfer Module, this tank can also be used for efficient, room temperature, wet protein transfers for downstream western blot analysis. The SureLock Tandem Midi Gel Tank is compatible with all NuPAGE and Novex midi gels and can accommodate up to two gels per run.
