Agarose powders for Electrophoresis

Basic Agarose Premier: your first price agarose for daily gels & standard analysis. This agarose has high gel strength even at low concentrations. Ideal for routine and rapid separation of DNA and RNA fragments.

Agarose Standard (low EEO): the optimal agarose for analytical and preparative purpose. Agarose Standard is a very low electroendosmosis agarose (EEO) which is advised for sharp resolution of nucleic acid fragments greater than 1000 bp.

Agarose High Resolution: the perfect agarose for small DNA fragments. Agarose High Resolution is an intermediate melting and gelling point agarose with twice the resolution capabilities of routine agarose and presenting superior sieving characteristics. Ideal for DNA fragments under 1000 bp.

Agarose multipurpose or high gel strength Agarose: this is the highest gel strength available especially designed for a wide range of molecular biology techniques.

Agarose Low Melting Point: this Agarose has finer sieving characteristics than standard agaroses. The low melting temperature enables nucleic acid recovery without denaturation or damage. The agarose will remain in a liquid state at 37°C allowing gel manipulations without prior DNA purification."
