Consistency may be the hobgoblin of small minds, but it is absolutely essential to studies requiring electrophoretic separations of proteins. Consistency, high resolution, and stability are all important when trying to determine levels of protein expression, for example, or when documenting a purification scheme of a protein. Novex's latest offering of precast polyacrylamide gels, the NuPAGE Neutral pH Electrophoresis System, provides advantages in all these areas.
