Product Description

Mini Vertical systems are predominantly used for protein electrophoresis. They include the OmniPAGE VS10TETRAD systems equipped with enough combs and glass plates to run 4 gels, and the standard OmniPAGE VS10 systems, which accommodate up to 2 handcast or commercial precast gels.

The preferred unit for routine mini protein electrophoresis, omniPAGE Mini is constructed using the latest injection moulding manufacturing techniques. This gives a high quality, low cost product with unsurpassed finish, durability and strength. The unit incorporates a sealing system which is compatible with all major types of 8 x 10cm and 10 x 10cm precast gel. Gel casting and running utilise the same insert, no transfer of glass plates during gel casting is necessary. The insert contains the option of sliding clamps or just one screw per clamping bar side (both supplied), allowing very rapid set up of both hand cast and precast gels. Ultra soft silicone seals and pressure bars which surround the glass plates guarantee leak proof gel casting. 2mm thick glass plates minimise breakage and have bonded spacers for convenience. Accessory electroblotting and tube gel modules are available which use the same outer tank and lid. For extended cooling of the buffer chamber a factory fitted cooling coil option is available. This allows the connection to a recirculating chiller. If required, please add ‘-CC’ to the appropriate product code.

Mini TETRAD
A 4-gel Mini TETRAD system is created by simply introducing­ additional plates with spacers and appropriate combs. TETRAD is supplied with a casting base and external casting upstand to allow gels to be prepared in advance, ready for the next run.

Interchangeable modules
omniPAGE Mini blotting and capillary tube gel inserts may be used with the same tank and lid to adapt an Mini Standard or Tetrad system for fast, high-quality electroblotting of mini gels and for reproducible 2-D electrophoresis, respectively. These units are available as stand-alone options or as part of fully integrated electrophoresis systems.
