Trouble is, an Electrophoresis Apparatus doesn’t do very much on its own. There are actually accessories needed to get it operational, and that is why for labs that are just getting into Electrophoresis. Some things, like the Agarose, is a consumable. Other items, such as the power supply, and a pipettor are crucial to electrophoresis. So several kits have been assembled to get all the hardware in place.
For more serious work in the classroom, a classroom kit has been set up using the EL-600 Apparatus with its 6 gel trays – This classroom kit comes with two pipettors (50ul) 2 racks of pipettor tips, power supply and EL-600 Apparatus:
For full classroom experimentation, more than a single Electrophoresis Apparatus will be required, for that there are two stations set up to handle groups of 16 (dual Station) or 32 students (Four Stations).
The Dual stations include two electrophoresis apparatuses, a power supply, and 2 adjustable volume pipettors:
The Four Station Kits include 4 of the appropriate electrophoresis apparatuses, 2 power supplies, and 4 adjustable volume pipettors.
In part 3, we will discuss the classroom kits available.
