Agarose gel electrophoresis is a routinely used tool for separating nucleic acids.
Nucleic acids are negatively charged molecules, which when loaded onto the solid agarose matrix, migrate in the presence of an electric field, separating the nucleic acids by size.
This kit provides all the reagents and supplies necessary for casting and loading agarose gels, the migration of nucleic acids and the subsequent calculation of the DNA molecular weight using a reference DNA ladder.
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.
- Learn to compare different size DNA molecules.
- Calculate DNA size with a DNA ladder.
- Hands-on experimentation.
