C.B.S. Scientific's new high-visibility mini horizontal gel system simplifies the separation and identification of DNA and RNA fragments, PCR products, and synthetic oligonucleotides. The mini gel system has a special red bottom stage that increases the contrast of wells formed in agarose, enhancing visibility and loading accuracy. The system also offers features such as a UV-transparent gel tray, two double-sided combs, a safety cover with interlocking power leads, and tapered baffles for easy gel formation. The gel trays are available for 5.5 x 8.5 cm and 7.5 x 10 cm gels. Combs come in widths of 1.0, 1.5, and 2 mm and in combinations of 10 and 14 or eight and 16 wells.
