Electrophoresis base unit
Eight sets of the equipment shown above (a gel tank, two combs, two electrical leads and a microsyringe) are included in the Electrophoresis base unit.
This inexpensive, safe, equipment was developed by the NCBE so that school students could carry out gel electrophoresis with DNA and proteins. It was awarded the coveted Millennium Product status by the Design Council in 2000.

The consumables to be used for electrophoresis are supplied as ‘modules’. There are currently four different modules: ‘The lambda protocol’, ‘Nature’s dice’, ‘The PCR and plant evolution’ and ‘Protein electrophoresis’.
