Environmentally Friendly Agarose for Nucleic Acid Electrophoresis
News May 27, 2015
CleverGEL is a new environmentally friendly agarose suitable for routine analysis of nucleic acids using standard electrophoretic procedures. Manufactured by a process which excludes organic solvents harmful to marine life, CleverGEL is far kinder to the environment than conventional agarose.
In independent testing - CleverGEL has been shown to produce a low EEO (electroendoosmotic) flow that minimizes diffusion so that even the smallest of nucleic acid fragments remains sharp and tightly resolved, while its high gel strength aids handling and maintains compatibility with blotting techniques.
CleverGEL agarose is available as a powder or in tablet form for routine analysis of nucleic acids using standard electrophoretic procedures. Supplied as 200 tablets in total, each tablet contains 0.5g of CleverGEL agarose which eliminates the need to weigh out agarose powder. Because each tablet is fast-dissolving all that is required is to add the desired number of tablets to the buffer, heat to dissolve and then prepare the gel as normal. CleverGEL agarose tablets are provided in blister packs of 10, rather than bulky bottles, for extra convenience and storage.
One in Five Materials Chemistry Papers May be Wrong, Study SuggestsNews
The replicability of results from scientific studies has become a major source of concern in the research community, particularly in the social sciences and biomedical sciences. A new study that compared the results reported in thousands of papers published about the properties of metal organic framework (MOF) materials – which are prominent candidates for carbon dioxide adsorption and other separations – suggests the replicability problem should be a concern for materials researchers, too.READ MORE
