Cellulose acetate electrophoresis is an important technique in clinical diagnostics. This new range of cellulose acetate products offers a complete system solution for research and clinical cellulose acetate electrophoresis applications. The CellasGEL range includes both equipment and consumables to assist in the research and diagnosis of specific disease states. Cellas Electrophoresis System The ideal tank for standard ‘dry’ membrane and ‘wet’ gel cellulose acetate techniques, the Cellas electrophoresis system is designed and built to our high quality standard to address both routine clinical and research requirements. Two adjustable supports, which can be positioned anywhere within the tank, readily accommodate different lengths of dry cellulose acetate membrane to a maximum 20cm.
CellasGEL Wet Membranes Applicators Unlike dry cellulose acetate strips that are restricted to low volume micro tests, CellasGEL’s greater thickness allows tests to be performed on semi-micro and macro scales using a wide range of specialist applicators. Consequently greater sample-volumes may be loaded as larger, but finer bands over a wider front. This reduces sample saturation and aids densitometric band quantitation, thereby improving resolution.
Bridges A universal bridge (BDG8.5S) supports each 2.5x14cm and 5.7x14cm CellasGEL during sample application by serving as a convenient loading template for the required applicator. Up to three universal bridges may be then placed into each Cellas tank for electrophoresis.
Densitometer A universal densitometer scanner with software capable of reading 144 tests per minute is available for band quantitation following post-electrophoretic staining.
