Here is a sample part number: 12W15HMC10Y
Acrylamide Gel concentration: 10, 12, gradient, .. your choice
Concentration: We will pour almost any single
concentration or gradient concentration
gel. 12 = 12% Specify any single concentration.
Single concentration gels with sample wells are provided with a 4% stacking gel
Select the Gel
Type: (learn more about buffer
systems) D= Tris-Glycine Gels with SDS. W =
without SDS. N = Tris-Borate-EDTA (TBE), (Gel Buffer is: 0.090M Tris, 0.080M Boric Acid, pH
8.3, 0.0026M EDTA). TBE Gels typically
not supplied with a 4% stacking gel. U = Urea/TBE Gels ( Same as N Gels, with 7 molar Urea added). TBE/Urea
Gels do not come with a 4% stacking gel.
Tris-Tricine Gels. Ideal for small proteins from 2.3 to 100 kD. (Gel
Buffer is: 1.0M Tris-HCl, pH 8.45, 0.1% SDS).
A = Tris-Acetate Gels.
Long Shelf Life (8 months).
B= Blue Native Gels. New!
Ideal for study of protein-protein interactions and very hydrophobic
proteins, such as
membrane proteins, their complexes and super
complexes. (as described by Schagger and von Jagow, Analytical
Biochemistry (1991) 199, 223-231)
= 0.75 mm thick (Great for blotting, stain in 15 minutes).
10=1.00 mm thick
Available December 9, 2015
15= 1.50 mm thick
( More durable and more sample can be loaded).
M, or BM
Running Apparatus: HM = Hoefer Mighty Small, SE250, SE260,
Hoefer Mini VE,Thermo EC120, Fisher Biotech FB VE10-1,
or Owl Penguin P8DS M= Universal Cassette.
Fits Life Technologies (Invitrogen-Novex),XCell I, II, and Surelock, CBS models MGV-302 and
402, Sigma Aldrich E5889 Vertical Unit. BM =
Universal Cassette. Fits into Bio-Rad Mini Protean II, Mini Protean 3,
Tetra and Dodeca cell.
Identify the Number of Sample Wells you want: C10
= 10 sample wells C15
= 15 sample wells
= 1 well. The top of gel is flat and a sample well for standards is not included. The resolving gel is poured 1cm from
the top (.5cm from the top for mini gels)
to create a flat top for prep and 2D work
(see 2D gels) . The
designation does not include a stacking gel. If a stacking gel is
desired, you must specify it. C2= Same as C1 except there is also a sample well (for loading a protein
standard) at one end.
Available on mini
gel thickness only size Gels. The C2 designation does not include a stacking gel. If a stacking gel is
desired, you must specify it.
= no sample wells (mini gels poured 1.5 cm from top).
Select Plastic Cassette for your
gels: Y =
One year shelf life, fast running. Uses Tris-Glycine running buffer. pH
Standard, 2 month shelf life. Uses Tris-Glycine running
buffer. Gel buffer is: 0.375M Tris-HCl, pH 8.8
