Where did that protein go? You've ransacked your cell lysate in search of it, but the elusive polypeptide chain is nowhere to be found. Before you resume your search, LabConsumer would like to bring you up to speed on the latest elution technology, designed to eliminate the tedious slicing and eluting of gel sections. The new Whole Gel Eluter from Bio-Rad simultaneously elutes and collects multiple bands of proteins or nucleic acids from whole polyacrylamide gels, including SDS PAGE, native PAGE, and nucleic acid gels. When a biomolecule of interest is well resolved on a PAGE gel, it can then be isolated by the Whole Gel Eluter and made available in liquid form for antibody production, sequencing, or characterization studies. Individual bands or groups of closely spaced bands are collected in liquid fractions within 25 minutes, making samples ready for subsequent analysis or bioassay.

While the prominent application of the...
