Finding the right protein gel electrophoresis system is critical to getting the consistent and accurate results you need for your protein research. Reagents and buffers are important components of the electrophoresis system. Invitrogen offers a range of Novex® reagents and buffers for gel casting and sample preparation to running, staining and drying gels.
|Life Technologies offers high quality and reliable reagents and buffers for pouring your own polyacrylamide gels, including urea, acrylamide, TEMED, and Rhinohide™ gel strengthner. We also offer Novex® gel cassettes and combs to make it even easier.
Not sure you want to pour your own gels? No problem. Learn more about our extensive line of Precast Protein Gels that can help you get your experiments done faster and more efficiently.
