Date: November 23, 1998Horizontal Gel Apparatus
One needs only a glimpse of the total number of horizontal submarine electrophoresis devices currently on the market to understand the importance of electrophoresis to the life scientist. This importance has spawned a vast market with many players striving diligently to find niches as successful manufacturers and suppliers. The resulting competition has produced a bevy of electrophoretic systems and devices, some with a few clever and unique characteristics.

In this profile, LabConsumer rounds up a small herd of mini-horizontal electrophoresis systems. Offering faster run times and less reagent consumption than their larger cousins, the minigel devices profiled here represent a small subset of the raft of available electrophoresis units. For the most part, when selecting the equipment featured here, LabConsumer relied on the manufacturers' designations of the size status of their products. Generally, the mini-horizontal devices run gels ranging from 50 to 150...
