Dye Experiment Kit

Key Features

  • Safe Dye Kit
  • Simple to run
  • Teaches principles of Gel Electrophoresis
Special Requirements?



This simple kit will enable you to teach the principles behind gel electrophoresis without the need to view the samples on a UV or blue light transilluminator. The kit contains six dye samples labelled A to F with enough reagents to run two sets of six gels. Vial A contains a dye marker consisting of 5 dyes. The other vials B to F contain a single dye. When the samples are loaded into a gel and run on an electrophoresis unit the students will be able to watch the different coloured dyes separate by the size of the molecules, so simulating how DNA separates by different molecular weight.

Stable for up to 6 months at room temperature and 12 months if kept in the fridge at 4°C
Contents: dye samples, agarose powder, electrophoresis buffer and Mini Fixed volume pipette.

This unit has a 12 month limited warranty, for more information, consult our terms and conditions.
