Advantages of E-Gel® Precast Agarose Gels

E-Gel® EX Agarose Gels
Our fastest-resolving gels, containing a proprietary fluorescent nucleic acid stain for high sensitivity, allowing:

  • Detection down to 1 ng/band of DNA
  • Compatibility with blue-light transillumination to dramatically reduce DNA damage
  • Separation of DNA or RNA
  • Complete separation in 10 minutes

E-Gel® EX gels are ideal for analyzing PCR products, restriction digests, and plasmid preparations. These gels can also be used for a quick check of the integrity of RNA samples before proceeding with downstream applications. E-Gel® EX gels were developed for superior sensitivity over comparable gels containing ethidium bromide, allowing you to use less of your valuable sample.

E-Gel® Single Comb and Double Comb Gels

These gels are general-use, ready-to-use gels with agarose, electrodes, and nucleic acid stain packaged inside a dry, disposable, UV-transparent cassette. They are offered with a single row of 12 sample wells, or with two rows, each containing 8 sample wells and one marker well, and are spaced for compatibility with 8-channel pipettors for easy multi-well loading.

E-Gel® with SYBR® Safe Gels

E-Gel® with SYBR® Safe Gels contain SYBR® Safe DNA stain instead of ethidium bromide. The detection sensitivity of E-Gel® gels with SYBR® Safe stain is similar to that of gels containing ethidium bromide. Use E-Gel® gels with SYBR® Safe stain to:

  • Minimize hazardous waste
  • Eliminate the use of a strong mutagen (ethidium bromide) and reduce UV exposure
  • Use blue-light transillumination to dramatically reduce DNA damage

E-Gel® Precast Agarose Gels for High-Throughput DNA Electrophoresis

E-Gel® 48/96 Gels
48/96 gels are ideal for high-throughput analysis of PCR products, plasmid preparations, and restriction digests. E-Gel® 48 gels include two rows each containing 24 samples and 2 molecular weight marker wells with a 3.2 cm length. E-Gel® 96 gels contain 96 sample lanes and 8 marker lanes, staggered to provide a 1.6-cm run length with resolution between 100 bp and 10 kb. This staggered-well format is compatible with most robotic loading systems. Learn more about High Throughput E-Gel® Electrophoresis.
