UltraPure™ Low Melting Point Agarose
UltraPure™ Low Melting Point Agarose is a polysaccharide used for size-based separation of nucleic acids in agarose gel electrophoresis applications. UltraPure™ Low Melting Point Agarose is ideal for resolving DNA and RNA fragments larger than 1,000 bp and for the recovery of nucleic acid fragments after electrophoresis, as it melts at 65.5°C (below the melting point of most nucleic acids). The solution remains fluid at 37°C and will set rapidly at temperatures below 25°C.
• Ideal for analysis and recovery of DNA and RNA for routine applications
• Strong gel structure allows for better handling and less breakage
• Ideal for a variety of applications such as in-gel manipulation, tissue & cell culture, and viral plaque assays
• Can also be used in protein electrophoresis applications such as Ouchterlony (antigenantibody interaction assay) and radial immunodiffusion (RID) (antigen quantitation assay)
The new environmentally friendly packaging uses 75% less plastic than the original bottles. This means less energy and raw material use in manufacture, and less waste in landfills. Additionally, the easy-pour spout reduces the likelihood of spills and contamination.
Performance and Quality Testing
The performance of UltraPure™ Agarose is evaluated to satisfy set specifications in appearance, moisture, gel strength, gelling temperature, melting temperature, sulfate content, electroendosmosis, and DNase/RNase assay.
UltraPure™ Low Melting Point Agarose (catalog number 16520-050) is a replacement for the item previously sold under catalog number 15517-014.
