  • Features and Benefits

    The Mini P-4 Cell has set the new standard for Mini Vertical Electrophoresis: Easier to assemble, leak proof, and with a four-gel capacity that doubles the output of the traditional cell, the Mini P-4 cell combines traditional features with higher throughput and even greater reliability. Modular Cells for Many Applications Interchangeable modules easily convert a Mini P-4 cell from one application to another. Each module fits into the same buffer tank and lid to form a complete cell. The modular configurations are: Mini P-4 electrophoresis cell — for running hand cast or precast PAGE gel and (SDS)-PAGE gels Mini TBC electrophoresis transfer cell — for western blotting.

    •  Run up to 4 mini gels in less than an hour  
    • Run four 2-D gels in less than a day
    • Evaluate sample preparation conditions
    • Screen new samples and process discovery projects

    System Component:

    • Cell: High transparency molded PC, clearly display the running status; easy-to-use Electrode Assembly and leak-free.
    •    Casting Stand: side-by-side design allows access to two gels simultaneously,    Casting Frame: Simple cam closure; no bulky clamps or thumbscrews.
    •    Gaskets: Silicone rubber foaming against leakage
    •    Plastic Comb: do not inhibit polymerization and have a built-in ridge to eliminate air contact during gel casting for uniform gel polymerization
    •    Glass Plate: labelled with thickness for instant identification


    Mini-TBC trans blot moduleincludes: Mini transfer module, 2 gel holder cassettes, 4 fiber pads, cooling units, instructions

    Mini TBC Electrophoretic Transfer Cell

    The Mini TBC cell is the perfect complement to the Mini P-4 vertical electrophoresis system.

    •    Transfers two mini format (7.5 x10 cm) gels in as little as 1 hour
    •    Cooling unit prevents buffer depletion during high-intensity transfers
    •    Cell performs low-intensity transfers by running at low voltage overnight    Sturdy molded design protects platinum wire electrodes from breaking.
