Developed in collaboration with the Kirkhouse Trust, an organisation supporting research and education in the biological sciences.This system is used for horizontal polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis.
Whilst vertical systems are commonly used for polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, this unit’s horizontal format allows for a large number of samples to be run simultaneously and combines this with the greater resolution of polyacrylamide compared with agarose. The model is based on the published work of Izzo et al (2006).
The main advantage of the system is that it is very simple to pour and cast the gels which takes away some of the complexity normally associated with vertical gel casting.

||…The amplicons obtained with the SSR marker were resolved on acrylamide gel using the horizontal polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (hPAGE) set (Cleaver Scientific, Warwickshire, UK). Briefly, 50 mL of a 6% denaturing polyacrylamide gel consisting of 21 g urea, 1 mL 50X TAE, 7.5 mL of 40% acrylamide-bis acrylamide mix, 100 μL TEMED and 500 μL of 10% APS was made. The solution was then cast onto a h…
