IBI Basic Agarose is a molecular biology grade agarose ideal for use in standard electrophoresis procedures such as rapid separation of DNA and RNA fragments, PCR products, preparation of plasmids and for screening, cloning and blotting techniques.
- Certified for standard electrophoresis procedures
- Excellent gel strength and clarity
- Economical alternative for basic electrophoresis procedures
- Lot-to-lot consistency
- DNase- and RNase-Free
IBI Basic Agarose is a neutral polysaccharide extracted from the cell walls of certain Rhodophyceae which are also known as agarophyte seaweeds. The structure of the polysaccharide is a galactan, formed by linking agarobioses 1-3, 1-4. This chemical structure gives agarose the capacity to form gels that are very strong even at low concentrations. These gels have a macroreticular structure with a very open mesh which can be adjusted simply by varying the concentration of agarose.
This is a molecular biology certified agarose product that has been designed and refined for use in every day routine electrophoresis applications. IBI Basic agarose provides a more economical choice for procedures that do not involve resolving small (<1000bp) DNA fragments or fragment that are within 15% to 20% in size of each other.
