Octi-Page is Cleaver Scientific’s solution for high throughput electrophoresis of 10x10cm mini-gels. Based on the 4-gel capacity of the CVS10TETRAD system, the Octi-Page takes electrophoresis one step further by allowing eight single gels to be run within two individual CVS10DIRM running inserts. By using the standard CVS10 mini-vertical plain glass plate with bonded spacer (VS10PGS1) and notched glass plate (VS10NG) configuration, the researcher not only benefits from being able to compare data between single gels run within the same tank but is also free of the complications that sometimes occur when opening and processing double-gel cassettes or triple-plate sandwiches.
Two casting bases are supplied to cast up to 8 gels within two CVS10DIRM running inserts which are then transferred to the tank for electrophoresis. While electrophoresis is underway, time may be then spent casting another 8 gels using the two casting upstands (CVS10EXCAST) in tandem with the casting bases. Once the first electrophoresis run is completed, the CVS10 mini-vertical’s unique sliding clamp technology allows the newly cast gels to be switched quickly and easily from the casting upstands to the running inserts, keeping the tank permanently in use for maximum throughput.
The optional VS10BI blotting insert also fits comfortably within the tank to blot all eight PAGE gels, while two reusable freezer packs provide enhanced low-cost cooling to maintain protein stability, particularly during native transfers. The Octi-Page may be supplied pre-configured for commercial precast gels, or as a complete package with power supply and blotting insert.
Octi-page has been discontinued but is available to order as a customer product depending on quantitiy. Please inquire for further information.
