Isoelectric Focusing System
For IPG strips and IEF gels
Developed in partnership with SERVA GmbH, the prestigious electrophoresis chemicals company based in Heidelberg, Germany, the IEF-SYS unit has been optimised for isoelectric focusing applications using SERVA IPG BlueStrips and SERVALYT PRECOTES and PreNet IEF gels, which are also available through Scie-Plas.
A 27 x 27cm ceramic cooling plate can be connected to the optional JULABO chiller to maintain either two 125mm square or one 245 x 125mm SERVALYT PRECOTES IEF gels, or a maximum of thirty SERVA IPG Bluestrips, up to 24cm in length, at their respective operating temperatures of 4 and 20°C.
An acrylic electrode frame sits directly on the ceramic cooling plate for IEF with SERVALYT PRECOTES gels, whereas a glass electrode frame may be employed when using IPG strips. In both applications, the positive and negative electrodes can be adjusted within the electrode frame - so that the voltage may be fine-tuned along each length of gel or IPG strip - and then held in position by a glass electrode weight.
The IEF-SYS unit can be also adapted for wick-based electrophoresis with horizontal precast gels.
