ENDURO™ Horizontal Gel Boxes by Labnet offer a full range of options for running DNA gels.
Designed for ease of use, safety and durability, a variety of sizes are available, from a mini gel system to a large maxi gel system that can accommodate as many as 450 samples in a single run.
A wide range of accessories are available to customize your system, including multi-channel compatible gel combs.
You can find these in the special horizontal gel box accessories section of our website.
The ENDURO™ horizontal gel tanks are molded for leak-proof performance and long service life. The corrosion resistant platinum electrodes are located in cassettes to protect them during cleaning and provide for easy replacement.
The lids fit on the gel boxes in only one direction.
A drip-ring on the lid recycles condensed buffer and prevents it from dripping directly onto the gel.
Casting gels with the Labnet ENDURO™ DNA gel system is very easy.
Simply snap the rubber gates onto the ends if the tray, place the comb in position and pour the gel - no taping is necessary!
Slots on the sides of the gel trays hold the combs in place. The two piece combs are designed so that the teeth can be raised or lowered to vary the depth of the well within the gel.
The supplied combs are 1.5 mm thick. Combs of other thicknesses are available separately.
After the gel has hardened, the combs and gates are removed and the gel and tray placed in the gel box. Loading strips may be placed on the bottom of the DNA gel box to aid in well visualization.
Labnet ENDURO gel trays are UV transparent.
The power leads for the ENDURO™ system are attached to the gel box lid. The connection with the electrodes is made only when the lid is properly in place. Removal of the lid removes power from the system. Side tabs and pressure pads make lid removal easy and prevent sloshing of buffer.
Many of the Labnet ENDURO systems come with multiple casting units which offer incredible convenience and speed up running DNA gels.
It is possible to run one gel while up to two more DNA gels are being prepared.
