Precast Gel Related Questions

 

Possible Cause:

1. Dislocation of the gel cassette in the electrophoresis tank.

2. Looseness of the spring in spring clamps.

3. Dirt, nicks or abrasion on the gray silicone rubber gasket.


Suggested Solution:

1. Place the gel cassette directly down to the bottom of the electrophoresis tank.

        The bottom edge of the gel cassette should be completely against the bottom of the electrophoresis tank.

2. Replace it with a new spring clamp.

3. Clean away any gel remains adhering to the foam gasket. Remove the gray silicone rubber gasket from the core. If there is nicks or abrasion, replace it with a new one.
