Improving Agarose Gel Performance

  • Superior Sieving – Better sieving than agarose alone, 1 gr Synergel = 2 gr agarose
  • High Resolution – Synergel / Agarose gels exhibit improved spatial separation and tighter banding for DNA fragments of 50-2000 bp
  • Easy To Use – Mix, boil and pour!
  • No Background Fluorescence – The superior optical clarity permits high quality photo-documentation
  • Increased Load Capacity – Accommodates greater quantities of DNA reducing band tailing and smearing

Blu-Lite UHCarrow12Blu-Lite UHC™ Western Blotting Film

Blu-Lite UHC™ is our newest line of high contrast, high sensitivity autoradiography film. Blu-Lite UHC film is specially formulated for an optimized balance of high sensitivity and low background. This low background, high contrast formula produces a lighter blue film, making it ideal for all autoradiographic and electrophoretic applications.

In addition to Blu-Lite UHC's excellent sensitivity and contrast characteristics, it is also coated on both sides (double emulsion) for improved consistency and overall performance. Especially useful with chemiluminescence, BluBlot™ HS works well with 14C, 32P, 125I, and 35S. This new film reliably produces sharp images which allow for maximum DNA visualization with unsurpassed clarity.

Compatible with automatic processors and manual development methods, Blu-Lite compares directly with films costing 3-5 times as much. With a shelf life of 2 years from date of production, Blu-Lite UHC is packaged in lined, light-safe dispenser boxes that include an improved "lift off" cover. Film is packaged 100 sheets per box.

arrow12Western Blotting Boxes

No matter what size your Western blot is, there's a box that fits it perfectly. With boxes that are correctly matched to common blot sizes, you can fit more blots on shakers/rockers while keeping reagent and antibody usage to an absolute minimum. Additionally, all corners are formed at a 90° angle and the bottom surface is uniformly flat, further reducing consumption of costly reagents and antibodies. (For example, popular mini-gels require only about 4 ml.)

At a price that makes them truly disposable, all sizes are engineered from crystal clear polystyrene (except for the opaque black that protects light sensitive samples). All sizes are also equipped with an easy-to-open hinged lid that reduces evaporation.

The new MultiBox™ 6 is made of exceptionally tough, crystal clear plastic and has six 32 x 100 mm compartments.

  • A perfect box for every blot
  • Reduce antibody usage
  • Hinged lid minimizes evaporation
  • For halves, wholes, strips or minis

info available in pdfPhosphorescent Marking Pen farrow12Glow Writer™

Fine-Point Phosphorescent Marking Pen for Laboratory Autography

Glow Writer is a phosphorescent pen for marking chemiluminescent and isotope-labeled substrates for X-ray film autography. The unique marker delivers a phosphor-containing ink through a fine point porous nib. Before exposure to X-ray film, the phosphorescent writing is excited by room light. The pen utilizes a phosphor ink having an optimum concentration of phosphor and a relatively short afterglow half-life (approximately 2-3 minutes) has been selected so that upon exposure to X-ray film, autographic exposures of almost any duration will be easily readable on the film. The fine point nib is easily replaceable if it dries out.

No more guesswork – Accurately measure the mobility of electrophoretic markers and ethidium bromide-DNA complexes during electrophoresis.

Thin – At 7mm wide they require only a single lane of an agarose gel.

Fluorescent ink markings are sharp and photograph well under UV light (300 nm & 350 nm).

Rulers are made of a flexible, UV-clear plastic so only the fluorescent markings will show under UV light.
