Owl Series EasyCast™
Owl™ EasyCast™ Wide-Format Horizontal Electrophoresis Systems, Models D2 and D3, Thermo Scientific
Horizontal Gel Electrophoresis Systems
Screen multiple samples on a single agarose gel in less than half an hour
Systems incorporate the EasyCast™ design, wherein each side of the gel tray is fitted with a gasket, which allows the tray to fit snugly into the casting chamber. A leakproof seal is achieved without using tape. Built-in leveling ensures the casting of flat, uniformly thick gels.
Sample loading is enhanced using microwell format combs designed specifically for use with these systems. Samples may be loaded directly from a 96-well plate, 8 or 12 wells at a time.
The D3-14 system can run up to 200 samples (D2 system can run up to 80) simultaneously on a single gel, producing clear, tight banding patterns with no “smiling.” Unique electrode placement increases the rate of gel runs without compromising the resolution. The systems are ideal for PCR products, plasmid preps, restriction mapping, and cloning.
