Electrophoresis equipment: What are its types and applications?

These equipment are used in scientific laboratories where a technique is performed to separate DNA, RNA, molecules and proteins based on their size and electrical charge; it does a process by using a gel that acts as a colander, which by means of a current makes the smaller molecules move faster than the large ones, there are cases where the sample is too large so the scientist chooses to cut into small sizes to make it more manageable and able to penetrate the gel.

This electrophoresis technique is performed in a kind of box that has a positive charge at one end and a negative charge at the other, by placing in charged molecules, through the electrical charge and gel, the negative ones will go to one end and the positive ones to the other corresponding; the use of the gel enables DNA research, as it facilitates the identification and examination of its components; this way it covers more fields of application.

Types of electrophoresis equipment

The scientific advances achieved by the use of this technique, forces the advanced laboratories, to acquire an electrophoresis equipment, which implies to know the best of the market, in this case we in KALSTEIN, offer you equipment of excellent quality and price, competition in the international market; with convenient designs, we present the YR series of different existing models, classified into two main types: 

Horizontal: provide a flexible and easy-to-use platform for all your horizontal electrophoresis requirements. With a wide range of tank and tray sizes as well as many comb options, these systems can handle all kinds of electrophoresis experiments. Our YR series of horizontal gel units offers the most versatile solution for DNA and RNA agarose gel electrophoresis currently on the market. These models offer an unbeatable combination of gel volume and buffer, with versatility of gel size and sample number.

Vertical: Vertical gel electrophoresis is a more complex configuration, this system is used to separate proteins instead of nucleic acids. However, before separating the proteins, it must break the quaternary structure of the proteins in the linear strand.

Vertical Models

  • Vertical Gel Electrophoresis Cell YR03429.
  • Mini-Protean Vertical Electrophoresis Cell YR03425.
  • Vertical Electrophoresis Tank YR03432.
  • Vertical Electrophoresis Tank YR03433.
  • Rapid Vertical Electrophoresis Tank SSR YR03431.
  • Quick Vertical Electrophoresis SSR YR03430.
  • Vertical Electrophoresis Tank YR03428.
  • Mini-Protean Vertical Electrophoresis Cell YR03427.
  • Mini-Protean Vertical Electrophoresis Cell YR03426.

Application of electrophoresis in laboratories

  • To link human DNA patterns, characterize DNA patterns A, C, T and G, study the size and variation of proteins and mutated and multiple DNA.
  • Scientists can also use this procedure to examine tissue samples found at crime scenes.
  • Taxonomists and evolutionary biologists can learn more about evolutionary relationships, identify species, and document differences between them.
  • Gel electrophoresis can determine paternity as well as establish genetic links between large groups of people.
  • It can also help identify certain genetic diseases.
