Description

Quantity Discount when you buy 4 or more 2.2 liter kit
Cataglog number: EC-829
  • Casts 29:1 denaturing gels for RNA or DNA analysis
  • Easily cast up to 20% gels
  • Certified nuclease-free
  • Consistently crystal clear gels
The newest addition to the SequaGel family, the UreaGel 29:1 System allows researchers to easily and safely produce denaturing gels of the popular 29:1 acrylamide:bis-acrylamide formula in concentrations up to 20% monomer. These gels are ideal for analysis of DNA or RNA. The UreaGel 29:1 System consists of UreaGel 29:1 Concentrate, UreaGel Buffer and UreaGel Diluent. UreaGel 29:1 Concentrate contains 241.7 g acrylamide, 8.3 g methylene bisacrylamide per liter in 7.5M urea in a deionized aqueous solution. UreaGel Diluent consists of a deionized aqueous solution of 7.5M urea. UreaGel Buffer contains 0.89M Tris-Borate, 20mM EDTA and 7.5M urea at pH 8.3.
Storage: UreaGel 29:1 Concentrate, UreaGel Diluent, and UreaGel Buffer are stable for one year when stored tightly capped, in a dark area at room temperature (20 oC).

Mix UreaGel System Components:
Determine how much UreaGel 29:1 Concentrate, Diluent, and Buffer you need to make your gels using the formulas below. Combine the necessary components in an Erlenmeyer flask. Swirl gently to mix.

For 100 ml Gel Casting Solution:

Vc = (Vt) (X)/25
Vb = 0.1 (Vt)
Vd = Vt – (Vc + Vb)

where:

Vc = UreaGel 29:1 Concentrate Volume
Vb = UreaGel Buffer Volume
Vd = UreaGel Diluent Volume
Vt = Total Casting Solution Volume
X = % Gel Desired

EXAMPLE:

To make 100ml of an 8% gel, calculate the UreaGel solution volume to be added as follows:
Vc =(100) (8)/25 = 32ml UreaGel 29:1 Concentrate
Vb = 0.1 (100) = 10ml UreaGel Buffer
Vd = 100 – (32 + 10) = 58ml UreaGel Diluent

Add Initiators and Cast Gel:
Add 40 microliters of TEMED for every 100 ml of gel casting solution. Swirl gently to mix. Add 0.8 ml of FRESHLY PREPARED 10% ammonium persulfate for every 100ml of gel casting solution. Swirl gently to mix. Cast the gel. Insert the comb and allow to polymerize one to two hours.
