Hi-Gel standard (High Gelling Temp, D2) Agarose for Electrophoresis
D-2 Agarose has a higher gelling temperature than D-1 Agarose and Low EEO*. This gives higher thermal stability to the gels.
- Extraordinary mechanical resistance for more reliable and easier handling.
- The possibility of varying pore size in accordance with particle size by modifying the gel concentration.
- Easy preparation of the gel by simple dissolution in aqueous buffers either by standard boiling or microwaving.
- Greater thermal stability due to high hysteresis (the difference between gelling and melting temperatures).
- Excellent transparency of the gels.
- Excellent elasticity and flexibility of the gels.
- Great capacity for derivatization and cross-linking, which allows coupling of enzymes, antigens and other substances to the gel structure.
- Exceptionally low absorption of staining agents.
- Absence of toxicity (the alternative is polyacrylamide which can be toxic).
- Nucleic acid electrophoresis.
- Protein electrophoresis (immunoelectrophoresis and counter-electrophoresis).
- Preparation of agarose beads.
