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 MP, a multi purpose agarose, is developed for analytical and preparative electrophoresis of nucleic acids and separation of high molecular weight DNA via pulse field gel electrophoresis (PFGE).It is also used for preparative electrophoresis and quantitative recovery of biologically active DNA. Agarose MP has also been used along with other supplements to store embryos in different developmental stages.
Absence of DNase: none detected according to the current Quality Control procedures.
Absence of RNase: none detected according to the current Quality Control procedures.
Agarose MP can produce high strength gels (e.g., the gel strength of a 1% agarose MP gel is ?1800 g/cm2). Even gels that have low concentrations of agarose MP are strong enough to be used for electrophoresis. The agarose matrix of such low concentration gels allows high molecular weight molecules to migrate rapidly without significant restriction.
Agarose MP is particularly well suited for pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, because it allows short separation times for large DNA molecules, while maintaining the high resolution required for effective analysis.
