Technical Data
Agarose DNA Fragments 50-1000bp
Molecular Biology Storage: RTShipping: RT
Agarose for DNA Fragments 50-1000bp is manufactured from selected algae and harvested during specific periods of growth to produce gels that are easier to prepare than the equivalent polyacrylamide gels.

Manufactured specifically for primer size fragments in the range of 50-1000 base pairs; exhibits exceptionally high transparency even at high concentrations (4.5%).

Analytical DNA Gels 1000bp
PCR products
Restriction Enzyme digestion products
Mutation Analysis
Blotting Assays 600bp
For use with all buffer systems

Recommended Usage (1X TAE):
Concentration Molecular Weight
1.8% 500-1000 bp
3.0% 150-600 bp
4.5% 50-350 bp
Note: A 3% agarose gel is equivalent to 8% polyacrylamide

Storage and Stability: Store powdered agarose at RT. Opened bottles should be capped tightly and kept in a low humidity environment. For greater separation capacity, keep the gel at 4C for 1 hour before use.
