Agarose is a purified linear galactan hydrocolloid isolated from agar or agar-bearing marine algae.
Basic agarose premier is ideal for routine rapid separation of DNA and RNA fragments as well as PCR products, the preparation of plasmids, and for screening, cloning and blotting techniques.
Grade: Analytical Grade
Key Applications: Analysis of nucleic acids by gel electrophoresis
Application Areas: Nucleic Acid Gel Electrophoresis & Blotting; Nucleic Acid Isolation & Purification; Nucleic Acid Electrophoresis; Nucleic Acid Sequencing
Product Type: Biochemicals
Biochemical Category: Agaroses & Acrylamides
Chemical Class: Agaroses & Acrylamides
Electroendosmosis (-MR):: 0.09 - 0.13 (Lit.)
Gel Temperature gel point 36°C (± 1.5°C)(Lit.)
NOTES: Sulfate content - used as an indicator of purity, since sulfate is the major ionic group present. Gel strength - the force that must be applied to a gel to cause it to fracture. Gel point - the temperature at which an aqueous agarose solution forms a gel as it cools. Agarose solutions exhibit hysteresis in the liquid-to-gel transition - that is, their gel point is not the same as their melting temperature.
Congealing Temperature: 34.5 - 37.5°C
Solubility: Soluble in water (1.5 g plus 100 mL).
Storage & Handling: Store at Room Temperature (15-30°C).
