CHU20 Cooled Maxi Gel Horizontal Electrophoresis System 

A Maxi Gel Horizontal Electrophoresis System with a cooling and buffer recirculation for optimum nucleic acid electrophoresis of up to 168 DNA or RNA samples.

The CHU20 Cooled Maxi Gel offers faster and sharper resolution for up to 168 sample throughput on a 20 x 20cm gel size, in a leak free tank with handles and buffer recirculation capability to eliminate pH and ion gradient formation. Cooling system permits higher voltages for faster runs.  It has a UV transparent and removable gel-casting tray with silicon end gaskets for in-tank gel casting. To cast a gel, the gel-casting tray is turned 90° to the direction of electrophoresis; the end gaskets form a leak proof seal against the inner walls of the running chamber. Once the gel has set, the gel-casting tray with gel is rotated to its original position for sample loading and electrophoresis. Tank construction includes: buffer recirculation ports to prevent buffer gradients (pH & ionic), 12mm Acrylic and leak proof design, 99.99% Platinum electrodes and Gold terminals.

Alternatively, single gels may be cast outside the tank using HU20-SCG silicone casting gates or HU20-SS Scie-Plas Super-Seals, while up to 3 additional gels may be cast simultaneously within the HU20-CU mini-gel external casting unit.

Features include:

  • Throughput: 168 Samples (max)
  • Gel Size: 20 x 20cm
