Agarose Powder - Best Porous Media for Electrophoresis

Press Release   •   Mar 14, 2013 13:52 IST

Agarose gel is extremely beneficial in a number of life science usages, but, its chief application in the chemical lab is for electrophoresis. Several kinds of super molecule add to the agarose solutions that makes it very helpful for biological process methods in the culture media laboratory. But, the solution with its indifferent properties and decreased level of chemical involution make it a favored chemical for application with nucleic acids.

Pulled out from seaweed or calcined ashes of sea-weed, agarose passes through a speculating process prior it can be practical in the culture media labs. These components go from a place in the ocean to a refined solution type that can be ideal in culture media and other life science labs. In India, there are plenty of companies that are engaged in providing a wide range of Agarose products.

Of course, it is of great surprise how anything as rich and plentiful as seaweed is the key ingredient in a momentous lab chemical. This easy-to-generate ingredient is probably the most know-able chemical in a molecular biology lab, with the only more precise mixture being water.

The preparation of agarose gel is likely the simplest and most ordinary way of parting DNA for analysis. Due to its impartial properties, this solution has become one of the highly beneficial as it ties to the DNA making it feasible to notice the structure of it in UV lights.

Normally, the agarose is available in powder form but it turns into a gel when it is flamed, thus the name of the solution agarose gel preparation. These agarose gels are provided in several specifications between .7% and 2.0% based on kind of DNA fragments. The .7% is widely preferable when large DNA fragments are required and the 2.0% being preferred to show littler DNA fragments.

Agarose is refined into a solution form, but that is of no application in the lab by itself. The product can be chosen for biology applications if it is blended using a buffer and formed into a gel. This solution is insoluble in room temperature water, but it gets mixed in heated water. The time solution starts to cool rather than the agarose becoming visible of the solution and forming to its genuine powder condition it changes into a gel like substance.
