      SCILOGEX VS20 WAVE Maxi Vertical Electrophoresis Equipment


      The new VS20 €˜WAVE€™ Maxi System is our latest product innovation for large format
      vertical gel electrophoresis. Designed to perform a variety of separations, including first and
      second-dimension SDS-PAGE, native, preparative, gradient and high-resolution nucleic
      acid electrophoresis, plus capillary tube gel IEF and electroblotting, the VS20 WAVE is one of
      the most versatile maxi vertical systems available.

      By introducing innovative, new vertical screw-clamp technology within the PAGE insert only
      four screws are now necessary to secure as many 20x20cm gels. This gives the VS20 WAVE
      Maxi the selective advantage of a much faster set up speed compared to competitor products
      whose traditional clamping configurations require as many as 24 screws to secure just two
      glass plates. In addition, the WAVE€™s vertical screw-clamp configuration distributes pressure
      evenly along the height of the gel rather than in the center to eliminate plate bowing and gel
      compression, but still maintains a leak-proof seal during casting; while the ergonomic wave-like
      design of the PAGE insert aids both handling and set up.

      Whatever your requirements are the WAVE can be made to meet them. Regardless of whether
      it is running 2 or 4 gels, electroblotting, and IEF using capillary tube gels or IPG strips, all of
      these techniques may be performed using the same omni-purpose unit while retaining the
      benefits of large format electrophoresis, such as extended separation distances, greater sample
      throughput and superior resolution.
      Versatility and Adaptability

      €¢ More Gels €“ run 2-4 gels simultaneously in standard 2-gel WAVE and 4-gel WAVE TETRAD
      €¢ Customize your system €“ for second-dimension runs with 18cm IPG strips and gels using
      the IEF conversion kit
      €¢ Utilize modular inserts €“ with the same universal tank and lid to extend the application of
      your standard WAVE unit to create a complete 2-D or blotting system:
      €¢ WAVEC2DS with capillary tube gel insert for 2-D electrophoresis
      €¢ WAVECBS and WAVETETRAD-CBS for 2- and 4-gel electroblotting
      Reproducible Separations
      €¢ Vertical screw-clamps distribute pressure evenly along the height of the gel to prevent plate
      bowing and gel compression
      €¢ Glass plates compress gently against a flat, level gasket to prevent current leakage from the
      inner buffer chamber during electrophoresis
      €¢ Detachable inner cooling coil connects to the laboratory water supply or a recirculating
      chiller to provide uniform, smile-free electrophoresis, while allowing runs to be performed at
      higher voltage
      €¢ Deep gel tank with adequate clearance beneath the glass plates to allow a magnetic stirrer
      to maintain buffer recirculation and uniform pH.
      Casting Advantages

      €¢ Dual purpose PAGE insert eliminates time-consuming transfer of glass plates between
      separate casting and running modules
      €¢ Ground glass plates with bonded injection moulded spacers consistent with comb thickness
      ensure €˜clean€™ well formation, as well as the correct alignment for leak-free casting; also
      eliminate the need for easily mislaid and awkward to use spacer aligners
      €¢ Very forgiving, ultra-soft silicone mat within cam-caster compensates for glass plate
      misalignment to ensure leak-free casting
      Other Benefits
      €¢ Notched glass plates with bonded spacers supplied with WAVETETRAD systems allow gel
      capacity to be doubled from 2 to 4, while dummy plate allows single gels to be run
      €¢ Bonded spacers and combs colour coded for thickness
      €¢ Widest selection of combs allow separation of up to 192 samples
      €¢ Robust 4-mm-thick glass plates
      €¢ Asymmetric lid design and colour-coded screw pins in PAGE insert prevent polarity reversal
      €¢ All parts injection moulded using durable industrial-grade plastic to guarantee longevity and
      reliable and consistent performance
