These are a few of our favorite (biotech) things – on sale now!

Slide_CYBER.jpgOur biggest sale EVER is underway! We’re offering deep discounts on some of our favorite items from 2019 – the EdvoCycler™ Jr., micropipettes, gel electrophoresis chambers, and the TruBlu™ LED Transilluminator.  Let’s take a closer look at each piece of equipment that is on sale.

The EdvoCycler™ Jr is our newest PCR Thermal Cycler.  While it may be smaller than our EdvoCycler™, it still packs a big punch!  The large, full color LCD display makes it easy to program this 16-place Thermal Cycler — no smartphone or tablet necessary!  Active heating and cooling ensure your PCR experiments run lightning-fast.  The EdvoCycler™ Jr. is proudly made in the USA and backed by a two-year warranty.

Agarose gel electrophoresis is a fast and easy technique that allows us to separate biomolecules or dyes into bands according to their size.  The innovative design of the M36 HexaGel™ allows you to run six gels in one chamber.  This means your entire class can perform electrophoresis experiments in one chamber, saving money and space!  Our electrophoresis chambers are proudly made in the USA include a lifetime warranty.

The MV10 Electrophoresis Apparatus is SDS polyacrylamide-gel electrophoresis, or SDS-PAGE, into your classroom laboratory.  This technique is used to separate proteins according to their molecular weight. SDS-PAGE is a powerful technique that is used in research laboratories every day. However, that doesn’t mean that it is difficult to perform this technique in your classroom laboratory!  Our MV10 will work with several different sizes of precast polyacrylamide gels, and we offer a wide range of protein electrophoresis kits that are sure to fit into your curriculum.

Electrophoresis experiments require current to propel biomolecules through the gel matrix.  The DuoSource™ 75 is a budget-friendly power supply that will let you run up to two gel chambers at once.  Get high quality results in under an hour!

557_02The all-new TruBlu™ LED Transilluminator utilizes blue light to view DNA gels stained with SYBR® Safe, thus eliminating the need for UV light or ethidium bromide which can be a hazard in the lab.  The spacious viewing area measures 14.5 x 18 cm, which allows you to visualize multiple agarose gels at once.  The adjustable control knob allows you to tune the intensity of the light source, ensuring superior visualization results.

Our White LED Transilluminator features a spacious 25 x 25 cm viewing area illuminated by long life LEDs and is housed in a slim aluminum body. It’s designed to safely enhance the visualization of DNA stained with FlashBlue™, proteins stained with Coomassie Blue and autoradiograms.

Accuracy and precision of measurements ensure that your experiments are both successful and reproducible.  For example, small differences in primer or template concentration can make a big difference in the results of PCR experiments.  To address this concern, scientists use carefully calibrated micropipettes to measure the volume of each component. 

Treat yourself to the gift of high-tech lab equipment that gives year-round to your students.  These deals only last until December 6th, 2019, so order now!
