Molecular Biology

  • Electrophoresis Apparatus (One Dimensional):

    (Right) 2 Series of Mini Gel Slab Electrophoresis Apparatus by Constant Thermal Type
    (Nihon EIDO)

    (Left) Mini PROTEAN Tetra Cell

    Proteins are separated each other by their molecular weights.

  • Electrophoresis Apparatus (Two Dimensional):


    Proteins are separated each other by their isoelectric points.

  • Image Analyzer : LAS-4000 IR multi

    It takes an image of proteins or nucleic acids on a gel separated by electrophoresis.

  • (Left) Phosphorimager : Pharos FX Molecular Imager

    (Right) Gel Spotter : EXQuest spot cutter

    Proteins separated by electrophoresis in a gel are detected with fluorescence. And, bands or spots of proteins are cut.
