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.

This Modular System includes all modules and accessories required for MINI Wide Slab Gel Electrophoresis, 2-D Electrophoresis and Electroblotting. The central component of these Systems is the omniPAGE MINI Wide Vertical Unit. This includes a rapid and intuitive casting system, enhanced and easy to set up cooling system and increased gel capacity – each can run up to four gels per run. OmniPAGE Tube gel modules are capable of resolving up to 10 First Dimension gels and the Electroblotting modules have a four blot capacity. This package includes all the necessary accessories for Slab Gel, First Dimension and Electroblotting. Each of these techniques benefits from rapid set up cooling packs which provide enhanced resolution even during high intensity 2-D electrophoresis and electroblotting.
