Nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) and proteins are routinely resolved by electrophoresis, which separates molecules based on size and/or charge. Following electrophoresis, the molecules need to be extracted from the electrophoresis medium for use in downstream applications and experiments. Electroelution is routinely used to extract both nucleic acids and proteins from electrophoretic media.
This kit teaches the principles of electroelution and allows students hands-on experience of electroelution.
Supplied with components needed for hands-on experimentation for six workstations of 4-5 students or 24-30 students. Supplied with Teacher’s Guide and separate Student’s Guides.
- Understand principles and alternatives to electroelution.
- Purification of DNA fragment using electroelution.
- Agarose electrophoresis equipment.
