Maxi-cooled horizontal gel unit with removable casting tray, including casting gates with integral silicone seals, 2 x 1mm thick, 16-sample combs, coloured loading strips and buffer recirculation ports.
The CHU20 Maxi-cooled horizontal gel unit is ideal for rapid, large-scale preparatory and analytical electrophoresis techniques. In addition to having the same 20 x 20cm gel-casting tray, 168-sample throughput, buffer recirculation ports and gel-casting features of its HU20 counterpart, the CHU20 has a labyrinthine cooling base situated directly within the tank. Once the gel is made, the gel-casting tray is simply lowered onto the cooling base, which may be connected either to the laboratory water supply or the optional JULABO chiller, optimised for enhanced cooling, allowing the user to perform high-voltage electrophoretic separations faster and further without compromising resolution. Unit Dimensions (W x L x H): 27 x 47.5 x 8cm, Gel Size (W x L): 20 x 20cm, Buffer Volume: 2200ml , Maximum Sample Capacity: 168, Recommended Power Supply: Consort EV243.
Cooled base - covering the entire 20 x 20cm gel tray - allows separations to be performed faster and at higher voltage, without loss of resolution
Cooling ports - connect the cooled base either to the laboratory water supply or the optional JULABO chiller for enhanced cooling
Four comb slots - at 5cm intervals along the tray for faster separation of a maximum 168 samples
Multichannel pipette compatible combs - with a maximum 42-sample throughput - reduce gel-loading time
Combs - colour-coded and heightadjustable - offer complete control over loading volume and well depth
Buffer recirculation ports - may be connected to a peristaltic pump for buffer recirculation during electrophoresis to maintain buffer pH and prevent ionic gradient formation
Coloured loading strips - for easy well detection when loading
UV-transparent acrylic casting tray - allows the user to handle the gel on the transilluminator with minimum risk of exposure to hazardous ethidium bromide
Side handles - for safe and easy transportation around the laboratory
