Criterion™ Vertical Electrophoresis Cell

The Criterion Cell is a midi-format vertical electrophoresis cell designed to run one or two Criterion Precast Protein Gels or handcast midi gels, which are wider and longer than traditional mini gels (13.3 x 8.7 cm vs. 8.6 x 6.8 cm). With a single Criterion Gel, you can run up to 26 samples in less than 1 hr or accommodate 11 cm ReadyStrip™ IPG Strips for 2-D applications.

Features and Benefits of the Criterion Cell:

·         Compact size that requires only 1 L running buffer

·         Built-in wedge on the lid to open gel cassettes in a single step

·         Locator slots built into the tank walls to easily and quickly slide cassettes into position
