The omniPAGE range of Modular Vertical Gel Systems allow multiple electrophoresis techniques to be performed in the same unit. Using the same main tank and lid, three different inserts are interchangeable for PAGE, tube gel and electroblotting techniques. These systems are available in three size options, MINI 10 x 10cm, MINI Wide 20 x 10cm and MAXI WAVE 20 x 20cm and MAXI Plus 20 x 30cm, as individual, combination or complete modular systems. Combination and modular systems offer maximum value and space and have the added benefit of increased consistency which results from using the same universal base and lid.

omniPAGE MINI Wide vertical gel unit, with a gel width of 20cm, effectively allows double the number of samples to be resolved as the omniPAGE MINI. This allows consistency of sample comparison on a single gel and is designed for those with greater than 20 samples to compare and resolve. Simple set up using ultra soft silicone seals guarantees trouble free glass plate loading and gel casting.
Dual gaskets on the gel running module along with notched and plain glass plates ensure leak proof gel running. Rapid set up cooling retains resolution in extended separations and also saves on buffer volume without affecting run quality.
4mm thick glass plates reduce breakage and have bonded spacers for added convenience. A wide range of accessories is available allowing many techniques to be performed using the same unit. Prep combs can be used to maximise sample loading and recovery. Accessory electroblotting and tube gel modules are available which use the same outer tank and lid.

The omniPAGE 2-D Systems include both modules required for Slab Gel and First Dimension Electrophoresis and accessories, to provide a complete MINI WIDE 2-D system. The Tube Gel Module includes a rapid release gasket for easy tube extraction. Focusing can be accomplished in as little as three hours. Disposable capillary tubes are included in addition to 2-D combs and spacers which are colour coded according to thickness for easy identification.
A complete stand-alone unit, BCVS10WDC, for first dimension capillary/tube gel electrophoresis, comprises omniPAGE tank and lid, tube gel module, tubes and blanking ports. Units are interchangeable with omniPAGE slab gel and electroblotting modules.
