A complete, complementary ‘family’ of
agaroses is available to meet practically all molecular biology
Each lot is empirically tested to ensure absence of
inhibitors to restriction enzymes, DNase and RNase activity, consistent
resolution of DNA fragments and low background fluorescence when
stained with Ethidium Bromide.
Standard Multi-Purpose Agarose
Hi-Pure™ (Low EEO) Agarose
Use for gel electrophoresis. A cost effective, high strength, multi-purpose
Hi-Pure Ultra™ (Low EEO) Agarose
Use for both analytical and preparative electrophoresis, RNA separation,
Southerns and Pulse Field Gel Electrophoresis (PFGE).
The highest gel strength agarose available (>1800gm/cm2 at 1%
gel) giving good handling properties at low gel concentrations.
Applications include separation of high molecular weight nucleic
acids, viruses, and ribosome's. Can be used for a broad range of
fragment sizes by modifying the gel concentration.
Low Melting Point Agarose (LMP)
The LMP Agaroses offer important reductions in both gelling and
melting temperatures, allowing convenient and easy recovery of biological
entities from gels. Applications for LMP Agarose include cell and
tissue culture and nucleic acid electrophoresis. A key feature of
Bio/Resolve™ LMP Agarose is high mechanical strength even
at low gel concentrations giving greater ease of handling and cost-effectiveness
in routine use.
Hi-Strength™ LMP Agarose
These are low melting (<65.50°C) agaroses that are particularly
suited to applications involving separations of DNA fragments greater
then 600bp. The high gel strength (300gm/cm2 at 1% gel)
make it easy to handle. The low gelling and melting temperatures
allows good digestion/degradation of DNA/RNA and efficient subsequent
Applications include: analytical nucleic acid electrophoresis and
Hi-Strength Ultra™ LMP Agarose
The lowest gel point available (<130°C at 1.5% gel), but
still a high gel strength for good handling properties. Optimal
separation of biologically active molecules, combined with certified
absence of inhibitors ensures maximal product recovery, and preservation
of products tertiary structure.
Pure-Sieve LM™ Agarose
A low melting Agarose with high resolving capability for DNA fragments
in the 200-800bp range. Use for in-gel enzymatic processes and preparative
Molecular Gating (MG) Agaroses
An innovative range of speciality pure agaroses, highly purified
to allow high resolution of small DNA fragments. They have the same
resolving power as 5-8% PAGE but without the attendant hazards associated
Use for DNA fragments between 60-1000bp and where high gel strength
(e.g. for large gels) is required.
range (in 1x TAE buffer).
Use in separation of DNA fragments smaller than 100bp - it is recommended
for use where DNA is to be recovered for subsequent use in enzymatic
range (in 1x TAE buffer).
Store at room temperature, dry atmosphere.
