Technical Data
Agarose DNA Fragments 150-1500bp
Molecular Biology Storage: RTShipping: RT
Agarose for DNA Fragments 150-1500bp 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 150-1500 base pairs and exhibits exceptionally high transparency even at high concentrations (4.5%).

• Analytical DNA Gels 1500bp
• PCR products
• Restriction Enzyme digestion products
• Mutation Analysis
• Blotting Assays 600bp
• For use with all buffer systems

Recommended Usage (1X TAE):
Concentration Molecular Weight
4% 150-600 bp
12% 500-1500 bp

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 4°C for 1 hour before use.
