The E-Gel® iBase™ Power System gives all the convenience of the original E-Gel® Power Base with even more power and control.
- Faster run time
- Programmable control
- Compatibility with all low throughput E-Gels
The E-Gel® Safe Imager™ Real-Time Transilluminator allows to watch migration of DNA in real-time in E-Gels containing SYBR® Safe.
- Real-Time monitoring of DNA migration
- Improved safety for the user
- Enhanced cloning efficiency of retrieved DNA
Self-contained Power System
The E-Gel® iBase™ Power System is compatible with all low throughput E-Gels. This self-contained device includes a built-in power supply. Simply connect the AC adaptor provided and plug into an electrical outlet. View program selection and running time on the easy-to-read LCD display. Preset programs are available for various gel types or you can manually set your own run times. A reverse program allows you to change the field direction, ensuring complete capture of DNA when using the E-Gel® CloneWell™ gels. The "Speed E-Gel®" pre-set program allows separation of DNA in 7 minutes over a 2.5cm run length, and can be used with 0.8%, 1.2% or 2% E-Gels. In addition, the E-Gel® iBase™ Power System includes an automatic shutoff feature, so you won’t overrun your gel. When running E-Gels containing SYBR® Safe, you can safely watch the DNA bands migrate through the gel by using the E-Gel® Safe Imager™ Real-Time Transilluminator together with the E-Gel® iBase™ Power System. The use of SYBR® Safe DNA Gel Stain and a Safe Imager™ Transilluminator ensures maximum possible safety to the user and gives improved cloning efficiency over ethidium bromide and UV.
Real-Time Transilluminator Designed for Safety and Cloning
The E-Gel® Safe Imager™ Real-Time Transilluminator is designed to fit perfectly beneath the E-Gel® iBase™ Power System and is intended for use with E-Gels containing SYBR® Safe. Blue light emitted by the instrument is ideal for viewing DNA that is stained with SYBR® Safe. Unlike UV, blue light causes minimal damage to DNA, offering improved safety for the user and enhanced cloning efficiency of any DNA retrieved from the gels. The E-Gel® Safe Imager™ Real-Time Transilluminator can be purchased as a stand-alone item (Cat. No. G6500), in combination with the E-Gel® iBase™ Power System(G6465), or as part of a Starter Kit that also includes an E-Gel® iBase™ Power System, E-Gel® CloneWell™ gels, and an E-Gel® 96 High Range DNA Marker (G6500ST).
