Researchers now have access to a device that enables reliable, leak-free custom development of protein gels for electrophoresis. Developed for simplicity and with an intuitive design, Thermo Fisher Scientific’s newly launched SureCast Gel Handcast System also helps to save time, money and precious samples.

While precast gels for the separation of proteins are popular among researchers, hand casting polyacrylamide gels continues to be the favored method used by labs around the world. But leakage and the loss of precious samples are recurring issues with many systems on the market. One of the core advantages of the SureCast Gel Handcast System is its ultra-durable glass plates, which are more than three-times thicker and up to 20-times more durable than currently available glass plates. A single-motion, load-and-lock system also creates a securely sealed assembly for confident protein gel casting.
