Labnet's ENDURO™ Gel XL includes all components necessary to cast and run horizontal gels: gel trays, combs, casting stand, gel tank and digital power supply. The migration tank, gel trays and multichannel combs are molded for leak-proof performance and a long service life. The direct connection of the power supply into the gel box eliminates the need for power leads.
Pressing the eject button separates the gel box and power supply. Reconnecting is easy-just press the two pieces together. The power supply can be set to either constant voltage or constant current with automatic crossover between the two parameters. Parameters are shown on the large digital display that is easily visible from a distance.
There are three different gel options for the ENDURO™ Gel XL; 12.5 x 12cm, 12.5 x 6cm and 6 x 6cm. One larger gel with multiple combs will accommodate up to 112 samples. Or run two small gels or four micro gels at the same time. Cassettes protect fragile electrodes from damage and allow for easy replacement.
A magnetic sensor allows current to flow to the electrodes only when the lid is in place. If the lid is removed while the system is operating, current is immediately shut down. In addition, the lid of the gel box is vented to dissipate heat produced during electrophoresis. To aid in visualizing the gel while it is running, there is a clear window over the gel platform.
