E-PAGE™ Gels are self-contained, pre-cast gels that include a gel matrix and electrodes packaged inside a disposable cassette. Protein separation on an E-PAGE™ Gel requires an EBase™ Integrated Device
, a compact and automated platform designed for medium- and high-throughput electrophoresis. Each E-PAGE™ 96 6% gel contains 96 sample lanes and 8 marker lanes with a 1.6-cm separation length. The well openings of the E-PAGE™ 96 cassette are compatible with the standard 96-well plate format, and can be conveniently loaded with a multichannel pipettor or 8-, 12-, or 96-tip liquid-handling robotic devices (Figure 2).
In addition to this 96-lane 6% configuration, E-PAGE gels are also available in a 48-lane 8% format
Both E-PAGE™ 48 and 96 cassettes can be opened to remove the gel for downstream staining or blotting (Figures 3 and 4). In addition, each cassette is labeled with an individual barcode to facilitate identification of the gel using commercial barcode readers.More About the E-PAGE™ Precast Gel System
The E-PAGE™ Precast Gel System
is designed for fast, mess-free medium- and high-throughput protein electrophoresis. It consists of the E-PAGE™ precast gels, E-Base™ Integrated Devices for running the gels, and free E-Editor™ 2.0 software for image analysis.
E-Base™ Integrated Devices combine the base and the power source in one device. Up to 3 "Daughter" E-Base™ Devices
may be connected to one Mother E-Base™ to permit multiple gels to be run simultaneously using identical parameters. The E-Base™ Integrated Devices are compatible with the Society for Biomolecules Screening (SBS)-standard plate size and can be conveniently mounted on liquid handling robot decks.
