Criterion™ Dodeca™ Cell

The Criterion™ Dodeca™ cell has the capacity to run up to 12 handcast or Criterion precast gels simultaneously. Criterion gels accommodate 11 cm ReadyStrip™ IPG strips to give the optimal combination of separation and speed in 2-D electrophoretic applications.

Features of the Criterion cell include:

·         Compact footprint that saves bench space

·         Locator slots to slide cassettes into place without alignment hassles or bulky clamps

·         Built-in cooling coil to prevent overheating and ensure the highest resolution

·         Stirbar capability that maintains uniform buffer tank temperatures for reproducible runs

·         A cassette opener built into the cell for easy gel access in a single step

·         Convenient buffer draining via the built-in quick-connect drain port
