The approved standard for manual sequencing
The S2 sequencing system provides and internal drain system for save buffer disposal. After the run a valve is opened to release the upper buffer volume to the lower buffer chamber. The lower buffer tray can then be removed for safe buffer disposable. This feature is especially valuable when radioactive samples have been separated.
No smiling effect or distorted bands
The S2 sequencing apparatus features an integrated Aluminum plate to which the glass plate sandwich is directly attached. Due to the high thermal conductivity of Aluminum even temperature distribution across the gel is achieved. In conventional systems, a higher center temperature in the gel led to faster migration of bands in this area (reason for the so called smiling effect).
Many accessories included
The S2 sequencing system comes with all hardware components needed for gel casting. Included are a pair of glass pates, side spacers, shark tooth combs, gel sealing tape and a manual.
