SeaKem LE agarose

The world's standard for gel electrophoresis
The world's standard for gel electrophoresis.

SeaKem LE agarose is ideal for routine analysis of nucleic acids by gel electrophoresis and blotting. Each gel sharply resolves DNA and provides consistent resolution from lot to lot. This molecular biology grade agarose has no detectable DNase or RNase activity and forms strong gels with low background upon ethidium bromide, SYBR Green, or GelStar staining. Due to its low EEO, DNA will have a high electrophoretic mobility.

SeaKem LE is also recommended for protein gel electrophoresis in applications such as Ouchterlony and radial immunodiffusion (RID).

For absolute assurance of minimal inhibition of enzymes used to modify DNA after recovery, BioWhittaker Molecular Applications recommends SeaKem GTG agarose. This Genetic Technology Grade agarose is highly compatible with enzymes used in restriction digestion, DNA ligation, and cloning.
