Replacement STS-45i Locking Knob Upgrade Kit, Right & Left – 4/PK
- Used to mount the gel plates on IB80000 frame
- Allows user to adjust holding pressure on gel plates.
The 8846289 contains 4 replacement knobs for the IB80000 STS-45i Sequencer.
These knobs mount to the frame of the IB80000 on each corner and are used to hold the glass plates in place when running a sequencing gel. The knobs are graduated so as to apply more pressure to the glass plates as they are rotated, proper adjustment is needed when first fastening new knobs in place so that the over-center locking feature is reached just as the optimum amount of pressure is applied to the gel plates.
