Denaturing Gradient Electrophoresis


  • Model No: MV-20-WAVE-DGGE
  • Factory Location: Taiwan
  • Sample Request: No
  • Target Markets: Worldwide

Detail Information

Description :

The MV-20-WAVE-DGGE is a complete system for DNA mutation analysis. It is fully equipped with temperature control unit, stirrer, and gradient mixer and casting accessories to perform specific mutation analysis applications. A powerful microprocessor controlled PID temperature control unit enables various mutation detection techniques to be undertaken between ambient temperature and 70°C, while the simple four screw design of the WAVE insert accelerates set up of denaturing PAGE gels. The flexibility provided by the modular design of the MV-20-WAVE-DGGE and its wide range of accessories enables laboratories to switch quickly and easily between different mutation detection techniques, thereby maximizing throughput and screening efficiency. A maximum 96-sample throughput allows detection of as many mutations within a couple hours, alleviating many of the bottlenecks associated with screening for DNA mutations.
