The new VS20WAVE Maxi System is an innovation large-format vertical gel electrophoresis system. Designed to perform a variety of separations, including first- and second-dimension SDSPAGE, native, preparative, gradient and high-resolution nucleic acid electrophoresis, plus capillary tube gel IEF and electroblotting, the VS20WAVE is one of the most versatile maxi vertical systems available. "Wave" refers to the vertical screw-clamp design within the PAGE insert which needs only four screws to secure as many 20x20cm gels. This makes for much faster set up than traditional clamping arrangements which may use as many as 24 screws to secure just two glass plates. In addition, the WAVE system distributes pressure evenly along the height of the gel rather than in the centre. This eliminates plate bowing and gel compression, but still maintains a leak-proof seal during casting. The ergonomic wave-like design of the PAGE insert aids both handling and set up. Whether you are running 2 or 4 gels, electroblotting, IEF using capillary tube gels or IPG strips, you can use this omni-purpose unit and retain all the benefits of large format electrophoresis, - extended separation distances, greater sample throughput and superior resolution.
