How do I find the best pre-cast gel from Elchrom Scientific for my particular application?
A9: Choosing the appropriate pre-cast gel is dependant on three criteria: the type of molecule (RNA or DNA), the total length of the fragments to be analysed and the required resolution. The electrophoresis system of Elchrom is designed to achieve particularly high reproducibility. The system also allows to predict the running distance of any given DNA / RNA fragment in any given pre-cast gel. Elchrom Scientific therefore offers a web-based software tool (http://www.elchrom.com/support/tools) to chose the optimal gel for every possible application. Simply enter the sizes of your fragments and the software tool will suggest the optimal gel either by shortest running time or best resolution. The software tool also allows you to predict the running time and distance for every pair of fragments separated by at least 1 mm.
