Agarose IV (Highest Gel Strength)

Agarose IV (Highest Gel Strength)
Agarose IV is a linear polymer with a very high molecular weight, giving gel structures unlike those of traditional agaroses.  This characteristic produces a strong intercatenary interaction, yeilding a gel with very high gel strength and higher exclusion limit.
 
For improved resolution, we recommend storing the gel at 4°C for 30 minutes before use.

Appropriate Agarose Concentrations:

Gel Concentration TAE Buffer [1X]

1.8%

200-5,000bp
1% 400-10,000bp
0.8% 1,000-15,000bp
0.5% 2,000-20,000bp
0.3% 3,000-40,000bp

Migration in the TBE Buffer is slower, therefore lower concentrations can be used to obtain similar separation ranges.



Applications

  • Conventional Electrophoresis
  • Pulsed Field Gel Electrophoresis: Due to its higher exclusion limit, large molecules can be separated
  • Blotting
  • Agarose Bead Prpearation
  • Cell and Enzyme Immobilization
