Cleaver Scientific to Showcase Electrophoresis Portfolio at Arablab 2016
Product News Feb 17, 2016
Visitors to Stand 354 will be able discuss and have a demonstration of electrophoresis and related products, including the revolutionary “Safe” series of electrophoresis products, the OmniPAGE VS20WAVE-DGGE - a versatile Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis (DGGE) system and the new Horizontal Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (hPAGE) system.
The 'Safe' Series of products from Cleaver Scientific were designed to make DNA electrophoresis procedures safer, more convenient and more economical to run. Eliminating the need for Ethidium Bromide and UV light, runSAFE is a completely safe stain for DNA gel electrophoresis. runVIEW® is an innovative system which can be used to maximise the efficiency of DNA recovery from stained gels by minimising the number of steps involved in post-electrophoretic purification. runDOC is a benchtop gel documentation system which sits above the gel tank and enables multiple real-time images of the process to be taken.
Modular in design the OmniPAGE VS20WAVE-DGGE system and its wide range of accessories allow laboratories to effortlessly switch between different mutation detection techniques, thereby maximising throughput and screening efficiency. The system is compatible with microplates and thermal cycler blocks enabling 96-sample throughput which alleviates many of the bottlenecks associated with screening for DNA mutations.
The new hPAGE system’s horizontal format allows for a large number of samples to be run simultaneously and combines this with the greater resolution of polyacrylamide compared with agarose. A key advantage of the system is that it is very simple to pour and cast gels which takes away some of the complexity normally associated with vertical gel casting.
