multiSUB Maxi is primarily designed for resolution of high numbers of samples such as from Cloning or PCR. It also allows ultra high-resolution separations over extended runs. Tray sizes correspond to standard blotter sizes for easy sample transfer onto a membrane for further analysis. Three tray sizes are available – 20 x 20cm, 20 x 25cm and a half-length 20 x 10cm. Multichannel pipette compatible combs up to 40 sample facilitate speed loading of up to 440 samples per gel. 50 sample combs offers a maximum sample capacity of 550 samples per gel.

The multiSUB series of Horizontal Gel Units offers the most versatile solution for DNA and RNA agarose gel electrophoresis currently available. All five units offer an unsurpassed combination of economy of gel and buffer volume, with gel size and sample number versatility. Gel size and sample number requirements can be exactly matched in each unit, with the option of additional gel tray sizes. This eliminates the need for multiple gel tanks for changes in gel size or application.
All units feature removable UV transparent trays. For optimum value and versatility, systems are available with one, two or three tray options (dependent on model). Easy to use, leak proof ‘plug and go’ gel casting dams are included as standard to allow gels to be rapidly cast whilst the multiSUB unit is in use for gel running. With no indentations or casting gate grooves in the tray to interfere with sample progression, traditional tape casting can be used, should this be preferred.
Although lid connectors are compatible with most major power supplies, adapters are available to provide complete compatibility.
Unique ClearSight lids solve the condensation build-up problem to provide a perfectly clear view of the gel and the dye lane progression during the run. This is achieved using a USB powered extraction fan within the lid. Clearsight lids are available as components of complete systems or as upgrades.
