This general-purpose agarose is genetic quality tested (GQT) grade. This ensures that DNA recovered from a preparative gel can be manipulated without compromising quality. The formulation provides exceptional DNA separation and more durable gels. The gels are easy to handle even at low agarose percentages - and are recommended for low-percentage gels (0.8–1.2%) required for DNA fingerprinting - PCR - or restriction digest analysis. Each batch is tested for gel strength and clarity - and provides the sharpest resolution of fragments of 20–20 -000 base pairs — ideal for all teaching lab applications.
