General description

Acrylamide powder is a white, odorless, crystalline solid. It is commonly used in molecular biology labs as a cross linking agent to cast polyacrylamide gels for nucleic acid electrophoresis.

Application

Suitable for making polyacrylamide gels according to established recipes.

Caution

Acrylamide powder is highly toxic through inhalation and skin contact. Acrylamide is considered to be a probable carciongen in humans. Standard laboratory nitrile gloves and full sleeve lab coats should be worn when handling acrylamide in any form. Dust masks or working in a fume hood is advised when handling acrylamide powder.
