Horizontal electrophoresis can be split into four sections.
Comet assay tanks are optimised for the comet assay often known as single cell gel electrophoresis, a technique useful when looking at DNA damage and repair.
A large range of DNA electrophoresis tanks often known as horizontal gel tanks or submarine gel tanks is also listed. These gel boxes come in a variety of sizes depending on the amount of samples and run lengths required. All the electrophoresis rigs come with combs and accessories as detailed in the descriptions of each individual gel tank.
The Rotaphor is a pulsed field gel electrophoresis system, also known as rotating field electrophoresis or ROFE. This system allows separation of large DNA molecules by using a patented electrode rotor to allow free electrical field angle.
TGGE or temperature gradient gel electrophoresis is a useful tool when performing mutation detection as it uses fragment melting behaviour to separate PCR fragments differing in a single position only.
