E-Gel® Agarose Gel Electrophoresis

Revolutionizing Gel Electrophoresis Again

The E-Gel® Agarose Gel Electrophoresis System is a complete bufferless system for the analysis of DNA and RNA samples. E-Gel® Systems are:

  • Convenient—cassettes are supplied ready to run
  • Fast—electrophoresis in as little as 10 minutes
  • Practical—compact footprint and room temperature storage of all components

Getting Started

  1. Get the tools you need with the E-Gel® Starter Pack.**
  2. Choose E-Gel® DNA ladders & markers for your E-Gel® Electrophoresis System.   
  3. Learn more about using E-Gel® CloneWell™ Gels and E-Gel® SizeSelect™ Gels, an elegant method to select and purify your DNA.
  4. Select the E-Gel® system that meets your needs.

** Starter Packs include an E-Gel® Base and 9 E-Gel® cassettes.

The E-Gel® Agarose Gel Electrophoresis System has self-contained agarose gels designed for fast, convenient, and easy electrophoresis of DNA and RNA samples. Each E-Gel® gel is ready to use, with agarose, electrodes, and nucleic acid stain packaged inside a dry, disposable, UV-transparent cassette. Just insert, load, and run your sample (Figure 1).

E-Gel® System—Easy as 1—2—3

Figure 1. See how the E-Gel® System Works. It’s as easy as 1–2 –3. Step 1. Insert an E-Gel® precast gel cassette. Step 2. Load samples and markers. Step 3. Run with preset or personalized programs.
