Very High Gel Strength

Our very high gel strength Agarose is a linear polymer with a very high molecular weight, giving gel structures unlike those of traditional agaroses. This characteristic, added to the very low sulfate content, produces an strong intercatenary interaction, yielding a gel with very high gel strength and higher exclusion limit. Typically used in:
Conventional Electrophoresis: can be used in a wide range of concentrations.
Pulsed Field Gel Electrophoresis: because of its higher exclusion limit, larger molecules can be separated.
Agarose Beads preparation
Cell and enzyme immobilization.
Extremely high gel strength allowing for lower gel concentrations (0.3%), enabling it to be used not only with high molecular weight nucleic acids, including chromosomes but also with large sized particles like viruses and ribosomes.
High electrophoretic mobility. DNA mobility is greater when compared with D-1LE. Electrophoresis times are reduced depending upon buffer and agarose concentration used.
Easy preparation of the gel by simple dissolution in aqueous buffers either by standard boiling or microwaving.
Greater thermal stability due to high hysteresis (difference, between gelling and melting temperatures).
Exceptionally low absorption of staining agents.
Absence of toxicity (the alternative is polyacrylamide which can be toxic.
