Use of the equipment in the Molecular Biology Facility

  • This equipment is in demand therefore there is an online booking system. Plan ahead, book time slots and stick to them.
  • There are now two of each of the PAGE and transfer cells. When booking use the colour system to select the apparatus you need. If someone is already running a gel or transfer on the HC power supply, you will have to pause the run, add yours and continue to run at the volatage already set. DO NOT change the setting without speaking to the person already using the power supply.
  • Users are responsible for supplying all their own reagents and consumables.

Tips and Additional Information

  • The Mini-PROTEAN 3 cell runs both hand cast gels and Ready Gel precast gels.
