- Can I prepare my protein sample with the reducing agent and store it for future use?
- Can reducing agents other than DTT or BME be used to reduce proteins prior to electrophoresis? For example, what about TCEP (Tris Carboxy Ethyl Phosphene)?
- How are Bolt Bis-Tris Plus gels different from NuPAGE Bis-Tris gels?
- What is the composition of the NuPAGE LDS Sample Buffer and what is the recipe for the 4X formulation?
- What are the main advantages of NuPAGE gels over Novex Tris-Glycine gels?
- My protein bands in the outer lanes of the gel show a “smiling” effect. Can you please help me troubleshoot?
- I am getting wavy dye fronts while using the Bolt Bis-Tris Plus gels with the Bolt tank. Why is this?
- When I tried to remove the comb from my Bolt Bis-Tris Plus gel, I noticed the presence of extra acrylamide. What is the purpose?
- I ran my protein samples on a NuPAGE Bis-Tris gel, and I see a bubble in the center of the gel with significant band distortion particularly in the center lanes. What is the reason?
- I ran my protein samples on a Tris-Glycine gel and the samples stopped running in the bottom portion of the gel whereas the marker ran fine. Why did this happen?
