Bio-PAG Film is a flexible, nonporous support film for poly-acrylamide gels. The film provides easier handling of the gel to reduce tearing throughout electrophoresis process. This includes fixing, staining, de-staining and drying. After drying, gels remain adhered to the Bio-PAG substrate retaining size and shape. The exception being thickness which reduces in size during drying. The film helps improve archiving, documentation and scanning to give greater reproducibility. Simply cast your gels onto the transparent Bio-PAG polyester film, the poly-acrylamide will be covalently bonded to the proprietary Bio-PAG surface during polymerization creating a flexible, robust, permanent and easy to use gel.
