IBI’s HR-2025 High-Resolution Electrophoresis Gel Box is ideal for separation of nucleic acids in agarose gels. It is designed for rapid screening of PCR fragments, RFLP analysis or plasmid screening, field inversion, genomic DNA separations, and electrophoresis procedures requiring recirculation.
The HR-2025 is constructed of durable cast acrylic which stands up to high voltages and extreme temperatures without cracking or warping for years of dependable operation. The combs are machined Delrin™ and come in a variety of configurations including some that are multi-channel pipette compatible. The unit can accommodate up to 4 combs, each containing 40 wells, for a total of 160 samples. The quick casting system is based on a compressible gasket for ease of use without the need for adjustments or leaky gates.
The HR-2025 is designed for high resolution electrophoresis. The maximum suggested applied voltage for the electrophoresis of DNA in agarose gels using the HR-2025 is 140 V.
The suggested run parameters for the electrophoresis of RNA in agarose gels containing formaldehyde is 60-80 V.
The IB56000 has a patented vented lid. Patent# 5,779,869
Additional combs can be purchased including combs compatible with multi-channel pipettes and preparatory combs.

Characteristics of Horizontal Electrophoresis Units
IBI horizontal systems are constructed of 3/8” thick cast acrylic, the heaviest in the industry. No warping occurs when the system gets hot, and there are no crazy cracks in the plastic after time.
The buffer tank on the IBI systems can be completely re-built, by the end user, in minutes.
IBI horizontal systems have a 4-year limited warranty on the buffer tank.
IBI horizontal systems allow the user to cast gels OUTSIDE the buffer tank, this is much easier and allows user to cast a gel while a gel is running.
IBI systems are 20% less expensive and come with casting system and combs.
This info applies to all of IBI horizontal systems against nearly all of our other competitors systems.
