SeaKem® is a high gel strength, low EEO, standard gelling temperature agarose perfect for electrophoresis and other molecular biology applications. This Genetic Technology Grade™ (GTG) Agarose is for rapid resolution of megabase DNA by pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE).
- Quality tested to certify performance
- High gel strength
- Low EEO
- Standard melting temperature
Due to its low EEO, the electrophoretic mobility of DNA in SeaKem® Gold Agarose gels is significantly greater than in conventional agarose gels. Run times for PFGE can be decreased by as much as 50% depending upon buffer and agarose concentration. Due to its high gel strength, SeaKem® Gold Agarose forms easy to handle gels at low concentrations (as low as 0,5%), which allow for the separation of larger DNA fragments by conventional electrophoresis as well as a decrease in the time needed to separate DNA by PFGE.
