Test electrophoresis chambers to determine highest voltage. Voltages beyond the recommended range for your apparatus may result in blown fuses or damage to your apparatus.

Features and Benefits

• Faster run times
• Sharper bands
• Easy to dilute and use
• Flexible use with a variety of gel types

General description

Bionic Buffer is a unique alternative to traditional TBE (TRIS borate-EDTA) and TAE (TRIS acetate-EDTA) electrophoresis buffers. Bionic Buffer allows for higher voltage runs, extremely rapid running times, and high-resolution band separation.


The 4 L and 10 L sizes are supplied in dispensers with a spigot.


Suitable for:
• Use as running buffer for nucleic acid electrophoresis, which may be part of Northern and Southern blot hybridization procedures
• Use with TBA and TAE gels
• Preparation of agarose gels
