MetaPhor™ Agarose is an intermediate melting temperature agarose that provides twice the resolution capabilities of the finest sieving agarose products. You can resolve DNA fragments, PCR and RT-PCR products, differing in size by 2%, in the range of 200 bp to 800 bp, by submarine gel electrophoresis. For example, a 200 bp DNA fragment can be separated from a 204 bp fragment. Using fast running protocols DNA differing in size by 1% can be resolved in as little as 1.5 hours in a 20 cm long horizontal or vertical gel format. MetaPhor agarose gels (2% to 4%) approximate the resolution of polyacrylamide gels (4% to 8%). These agarose gels are ideal for resolving AMPFLPs, STRs, and tri- and tetranucleotide repeats.
