TV400Y Standard & TV400YK Cooled Twin Plate Maxi-Gel Electrophoresis Unit with casting

  • The systems is a twin plate 20.5 x 20 cm wide format mini-gel unit designed specifically for PAGE techniques requiring self-cast gels.
  • The system has large format 20.5 x 20.5 cm glass plate dimensions are ideal for running higher percentage polyacrylamide gels to resolve smaller proteins of similar molecular weight.
  • The system contains standard casting units.
  • Four (4) mm thick float glass plates guarantee uniform gel thickness and even sample migration with ground edges to inhibit sample leakage during casting
  • Standard TV 400Y-non cooled +casting and cooled TV400YK – cooled + casting versions available.
  • Enhanced cooling in TV400Y –snap-lock connectors allow the cooling coil to be connected to an external chiller unit for faster, higher voltage separations.
  • Glass plate stops within the newly modified GRM –lock the glass plates firmly into position onto soft silicone gaskets in casting base to ensure leak-free gel casting.
  • Triple screws on each gel –clamp –act in conjunction with a counterbalanced dovetailed silicone gasket to disperse pressure evenly along the height and breadth of the gel as the screws are tightened.
  • Colour coded combs and spacers available in 0.75, 1, 1.5 and 2 mm thickness.
