Product Details

Bio-Rad’s Mini-PROTEAN Tetra cell is a mini-format, vertical polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis system that provides rapid, high-resolution separation of protein (or DNA) mixtures by SDS-PAGE or native PAGE. An indispensable piece of equipment in research laboratories, the durable and easy-to-assemble Mini PROTEAN Tetra cell is also well-suited for use in classroom laboratories.

Use the Mini-PROTEAN Tetra cell to teach protein fingerprinting, sample purity analysis, and downstream western blotting techniques in independent projects or with the following educational kits:

  • Comparative Proteomics Kit I: Protein Profiler Module
  • pGLO SDS-PAGE Extension
  • Protein Expression and Purification Series

Key Features

  • Runs 1–4 mini polyacrylamide gels in 30 min
  • Fast, simple setup
  • Indestructible molded polycarbonate construction
  • Leak-free electrophoresis and gel casting
  • Requires a PowerPac Basic or comparable power supply

Configuration Options

The Mini-PROTEAN Tetra Cell can be configured for use with 1–4 precast or handcast gels in different thicknesses.

  • All Mini-PROTEAN Tetra Cells include buffer tank, electrode assembly, lid with power cables, and mini cell buffer dam
  • Mini-PROTEAN Tetra Cells for handcasting include casting frames and stands, glass plates, 10-well gel combs, and sample loading guide
