Dual mini tank system with the option to operate 1 or 2 precast gels. It accommodates all types of SERVAGel™, SERVAGel™ TG PRiME™ and all other commercially available precast gels with an outer cassette dimension of 10 x 10 x 0.7 cm. The fixture of the inner core unit provides 4 robust clamps (2 on both sides) which fix 2 precast gel cassettes properly and tightly in their correct position. This ensures that the inner buffer chamber is leak-free separated from the outer buffer compartment.
Separation of proteins by SDS PAGE, native PAGE and IEF can be carried out as well as separation of nucleic acids. The outer buffer tank works as a heat sink (passive buffer cooling), sufficient for most applications mentioned above. 2 SERVAGel™ TG PRiME™ can be run simultaneously at 300 V. The run will be completed in about 35 min without warming up the buffer significantly. If additional cooling is required (e. g. for IEF applications), a magnetic stirrer bar can be inserted to help circulation of buffer fluid.
The unit consists of an outer buffer tank and the inner core running unit. Mounting of precast gels does not require any tedious clamping but is a matter of seconds. The outer buffer tank is made from rugged transparent acrylic, so the gel can be watched while running. A safety lid closes the top, giving the unit a very compact and robust design.
- Little bench space is required.
- The unit is in accordance with the European safety guidelines (CE mark).
