General description

Agarose is obtained from seaweed and contains repeated agarobiose units. During agarose gel formation, the polymers aggregate to form a network with varying pore sizes. This property is used in agarose gel electrophoresis to separate DNA.


  • Agarose LE  is especially suited  for analyzing fragments between 0.2 and 15 kb in: Analysis of PCR products
  • Examination of restriction endonucleases
  • Digests of plasmid, cosmid, and λ phage DNA
  • Electrophoresis of RNA in, e.g., denaturing gels containing formaldehyde
Nucleic acid fragments separated with Agarose LE can be blotted to nylon or nitro-cellulose membranes by all standard blotting techniques.
Important Note: Detection with nonradioactive probes e.g., digoxigenin-labeled nucleic acids, does not interfere with the use of Agarose LE.


Absence of DNase: none detected according to the current Quality Control procedures.
Absence of RNase: none detected according to the current Quality Control procedures.

Other Notes

For life science research only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Agarose gel electrophoresis is the most effective way of separating DNA fragments of varying sizes ranging from 100 bp to 25 kb(1). Agarose is isolated from the seaweed genera Gelidium and Gracilaria, and consists of repeated agarobiose (L- and D-galactose)...
