Product Description

  • Designed for nucleic acid screening electrophoresis
  • The JSB-30 is a 7.5cm x 10cm mini gel in a horizontal format that will accommodate up to 18 samples per run in under 30 minutes.
  • This system can process a large number of samples and ideal for PCR, fragment analysis, or recombinant screening.
  • Constructed of heavy-duty 1/2" cast acrylic for years of dependable service.
  • The maximum suggested applied voltage for the electrophoresis of DNA in agarose gels using the JSB-30 is 150 volts. In a 1% TBE gel, this translates into a run time of approximately 1 hour. Lower voltages may be used, of course, and as a general rule, a 75 volt run will take twice as long as a 150 volt run. Higher voltages may be used to decrease run time; however, if the unit is being operated at higher voltages than 150 volts the heat generated during electrophoresis may decrease sample resolution. Such artifacts may be avoided by running the unit in a cold room or adding 1X electrophoresis buffer "ice cubes" to keep the unit properly cooled.
  • The suggested run parameters for the electrophoresis of RNA in agarose gels containing formaldehyde are 60-80 volts.
  • The JSB-30 also provides the user with the option of running different length trays.
  • There are two accessory gel trays and casting fixture trays (sold separately) offered for use in the JSB-30. One tray is 5cm long and the other tray is 7.5cm long.
  • Comes complete with Lid, 7.5cm x 10cm UVT Casting Tray, Casting Fixture Tray (10cm), One 1.5mm x 13-Tooth Comb, Comb Holder, Bubble Level, Adjustable Feet, Power Cords, and Operating Manual
