NuSieveTM 3:1 Agarose is a molecular biology grade, standard melting temperature agarose that yields strong gels for fine resolution of small DNA, RNA, and PCR products ≤ 1 kb. NuSieveTM 3:1 Agarose is designed for analytical electrophoresis rather than in gel reactions or downstream applications. These easy-to-handle gels enhance the speed of gel processing and blotting. Performance testing of NuSieveTM 3:1 Agarose ensures fine resolution of DNA fragments up to 1,000 bp, though this agarose is capable of finely resolving DNA fragments ranging from 10 bp up to 1,500 bp.

PCR Products on a NuSieve™ 3:1 Agarose Gel – A 550 bp sequence from lambda DNA was amplified (25 cycles) using primers and Taq DNA polymerase supplied in the GeneAmp® kit (Roche Molecular Systems). PCR products and controls were electro phoresed on a 4% NuSieve™ 3:1 agarose gel in TAE buffer at 5 V/cm for 3 hours. Lane 1, Msp I digest of pBR322 DNA (1.5 μg); lane 2, Hae III digest of øX174 DNA (1.5 μg); lane 3, no DNA control; lanes 4 – 9, PCR products resulting from different reaction conditions (7 μl of 100 μl reaction mixture); and lane 10, a positive control where kit template was added.
