Longstanding favorite of molecular biologists the world over, UreaGel 6  consists of UreaGel Monomer Solution and UreaGel Complete Buffer Solution (formerly SequaGel 6 ). The UreaGel Monomer Solution contains urea, as well as acrylamide and bis-acrylamide in the standard 19:1 ratio. UreaGel Complete Buffer Solution contains TBE and TEMED. Upon combining these two solutions, the researcher adds ammonium persulfate to form a crystal clear 6% 19:1 electrophoresis matrix containing 1X TBE (89 mM Tris Base, 89 mM Boric Acid, 2 mM EDTA, pH 8.3) and 6M Urea.

Mix Solutions
Add appropriate volumes of SequaGel 6 or 8 Monomer Solution and SequaGel Complete Buffer to a thick-walled Erlenmeyer flask (see Table 1). If desired, the solution may be degassed by stirring under vacuum for two minutes.
Bring to room temperature before polymerization.

Add APS and Cast Gel
Add FRESHLY PREPARED 10% Ammonium Persulfate (see Table 1). Swirl gently to mix, and cast the gel. Insert the comb and allow to polymerize one to two hours. NOTE: After two hours of polymerization wrap each end of the gel cassette with clear plastic wrap. This is important to keep the ends of the gel from drying and to maintain sample well integrity. Appropriately wrapped gels may be stored for up to 48 hours.
