The EZ Pack Agarose tablets are Benchmark's agarose, now available in a convenient, no mess tablet. Benchmark's high quality agarose is refined in an advanced process that excludes the use of organic solvents. The result is a cleaner end product with significantly reduced environmental impact. The agarose can be used for analyses of nucleic acids from 150bp to 6kbp, protein electrophoresis and various blotting protocols. The A2501's low electroendosmosis or EEO of the agarose promotes increased electrophoretic mobility, yielding improved resolution and shorter run times. This also allows macromolecules and larger particles (sub cellular fragments, viruses, etc.) to migrate more freely through the gel matrix. The consistently low EEO reduces band distortion (caused by counterflow) that can result from the presence of excessive sulfate-rich negative ions. The quick dissolving ez pack tablet contains 0.5g (500mg) of Agarose LE, eliminating the hands-on time and inaccuracies normally associated with weighing. Use of the tablet is not only convenient and cleaner, it also provides better consistency and reproducibility gel to gel. Gel preparation is simple - add the desired number of tablets to electrophoresis buffer, allow to sit for two minutes and then heat and pour as usual. The resulting gels are highly transparent, have exceptional thermal stability (ensuring safe and easy handling) and exhibit exceptionally low absorption of chemical staining agents. Benchmark Scientific A2501 EZ Pack Agarose Tablets are supplied in convenient blister packs for safe, clean dispensing and come in two pack sizes. A 100g pack for 200 0.5g tablets, and a 500g pack with 1,000 0.5g tablets.
