The Variable Comb Vertical (VCV) Electrophoresis System (IB62000) is designed for high resolution and rapid analysis of protein and nucleic acid samples in 18 cm x 22 cm format agarose and polyacrylamide gels. It is ideal for mapping or blotting procedures.

Additional combs and spacer sets are available in 0.8 mm, 1.5 mm, and 3.0 mm. The 0.8 mm gel thickness gives uniformity of thin vertical gels, allows sharper band patterns, quicker denaturation, and fragment transfer.

The simple design, durable construction, and variety of accessories available with the VCV Electrophoresis System enables the VCV system to be used for many different applications.

The IB62000 is constructed of durable cast acrylic for years of faithful operation.

General Information about Vertical Electrophoresis Our vertical electrophoresis unit “spacers” are customized for our units only. They cannot be used on another company’s unit. Our spacers are orange rubber pieces in which the glass fits into and is held in place.

Options for Cooling a Vertical Gel System 1. The user can make up buffer ice cubes (use same buffer that they are running their gel in.) These can be placed in the buffer tank while running the gel to cool it. 2.For the MaGELin systems, an ice pack can be purchased in placed in the buffer tank to cool it down. The product# is IB92080.
