Mini format Ready Gel Precast Gels are for use with the Mini-PROTEAN Tetra and Mini-PROTEAN 3 Dodeca cells. The individually packaged gels are available in six formulations.
Bio-Rad’s Ready Gels range includes • Ready Gel Tris-HCI Precast Gels Bio-Rad Tris-HCl gels are made without SDS. SDS is added to the sample and running buffers to create standard SDS denaturing electrophoresis conditions. • Ready Gel IEF Precast Gels Isoelectric focusing (IEF) gels separate proteins based on their net charge rather than their molecular weight. IEF gels are cast with carrier ampholytes to create a pH gradient within the gel. • Ready Gel Zymogram Precast Gels Zymogram gels contain gelatin or casein, which are substrates for proteases. Samples with proteolytic activity can be visualized as clear bands against a blue background after Coomassie R-250 staining. • Ready Gel TBE-Urea Precast Gels TBE-urea gels maintain denaturing conditions for analysis of single-stranded DNA and RNA. Nucleic acids between 60 and 200 bases are resolved as sharp, distinct bands.
