IBI Basic Agarose is ideal for standard electrophoresis procedures such as, rapid separation of DNA and RNA fragments, PCR products, preparation of plasmids and for screening, cloning and blotting techniques.
IBI Basic Agarose is a neutral polysaccharide extracted from the cell walls of certain Rhodophyceae which are also known as agarophyte seaweeds. The structure of the polysaccharide is a galactan, formed by linking agarobioses 1-3, 1-4. This chemical structure gives agarose the capacity to form gels that are very strong even at low concentrations. These gels have a macroreticular structure with a very open mesh which can be adjusted simply by varying the concentration of agarose.
IBI agarose is molecular biology certified and refined for use in every day routine electrophoresis applications. IBI Basic agarose provides a more economical choice for procedures that do not involve resolving small (<1000 bp) DNA fragments or fragment that are within 15% to 20% in size of each other.
