Currently laboratories normally use many separate devices and instruments to perform gel electrophoresis, including the electrophoresis chamber, power supply, staining bath, UV desk, documentation device (Polaroid or CCD camera) and a system for data storage, all of which require a lot of bench-space and impede smooth workflow. An innovative stand-alone molecular diagnostics instrument, the CyFox, is now available, which incorporates everything necessary to carry out gel electrophoresis in a single instrument.
The fully integrated system is user-friendly and very compact (210 x 210 x 227mm), and the running gels can be monitored and visualised in real-time during the entire course of the analysis. In addition, the company is offering a wide range of dedicated reagents and consumables for gel electrophoresis in combination with the CyFox, including reagents for HIV, CMV, Hepatitis, TB, malaria and many other applications.
