Mini-PROTEAN® 3 Dodeca™ Cell

The Mini-PROTEAN 3 Dodeca cell runs up to 12 mini gels under identical conditions in just 35 minutes. Eliminate gel-to-gel variation by hand casting gels 12 at a time using the Mini-PROTEAN 3 Multi-Casting Chamber and Model 485 Gradient Former. Alternatively, use Mini-PROTEAN or Ready Gel® Precast Gels for added convenience and reproducibility.

Features of the Mini-PROTEAN 3 Dodeca cell include:

·         Capacity to run up to 12 gels simultaneously

·         Built-in cooling coil that attaches to an external refrigerated circulator to prevent overheating and ensure high resolution results

·         Stirbar capability that helps maintain uniform buffer tank temperature for run reproducibility

·         Easy assembly facilitated by a patented* electrophoresis clamping frame

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

·         Compact footprint that saves bench space
