Benchmark Agarose LE is a highly purified agarose, suitable for a variety of molecular biology applications. It is refined using an advanced process that excludes the use of organic solvents, yielding a cleaner end-product with a significantly reduced environmental impact. Agarose LE can be used for analyses of proteins and nucleic acids of various sizes (150 bp to 6 kbp). It's low EEO (= 0.13-mr ) promotes increased electrophoretic mobility, yielding improved resolution and shorter run times. This also allows macro-molecules and larger particles (sub-cellular fragments, viruses, etc.) to migrate more freely through the gel matrix. The consistently low EEO also provides a reduction in band distortion (caused by counter-flow) that can result from the presence of excessive sulfate-rich negative ions.
