Before Use: Preparing the gel and samples
Use the plastic shutters to create buffer zones before you pour the gel.
Prepare the gel in a beaker. Once it is not too hot to hold for 30 seconds, add the safe stain and pour into the gel box. Add the comb. Allow the gel to cool. In the meantime, prepare your samples. Once the gel has solidiﬁed, remove the comb. Remove the shutters. Pipette the samples into the well and add the buffer.
Running Gel Electrophoresis
Slide the gel lid onto the gel box carefully, then connect the leads of the gel box lid into the Bento Lab Gel Electrophoresis power supply.
On the interface, select the Gel Electrophoresis module from the status screen. On this screen the voltage can be set and a timer for the Gel Electrophoresis power supply can be set.
The blue light transilluminator can also be turned un with the light bulb button.
To start Gel Electrophoresis, set the voltage and click on the timer button. Note that since Bento Lab’s gel box is a mini-gel, 50V will be sufﬁcient for most applications.
The power supply will start, once the timer has been conﬁrmed.
