    Comet Assay Tanks

    Product Description

    CSL-comet sh-600x600

    Gentaur Comet Assay Tanks are available in four slide formats to study single cell gel electrophoresis (SCGE), a technique made popular by drug toxicology and carcinogenesis studies for the detection and quantifation of DNA damage in cells. Each tank’s robust construction from ebony acrylic ensures that cells remain free of exposure to background light and DNA damage during electrophoresis, while a cooled central platform provides a convenient surface for slide preparation and control of slide temperature during the assay. Following electrophoresis DNA damage may be measured using Comet Assay scoring software.

    Background: First introduced in 1981 to quantify double-stranded DNA breakages in single cells exposed to irradiation, the Comet Assay (or SCGE) has since been adapted to analyse specific DNA lesions and repair processes.

    Overview: Following genotoxic insult, such as ionizing radiation, the resultant strand breakage of supercoiled duplex DNA reduces the size of the large genomic DNA from which these strands are separated or drawn out by electrophoresis. The genomic DNA then takes on the appearance of a comet as its negatively charged broken ends and fragments migrate towards the anode during electrophoresis.

    Method: After exposure to a genotoxic insult cells are suspended within low melting point agarose and embedded within a thin layer of agarose on a microscope slide. Cellular protein is then removed by lysis in detergent, when DNA is allowed to unwind in alkaline conditions before electrophoresis. The DNA is electrophoresed, stained and then analysed using software.

    Results: Microscopy imaging is used to measure DNA fluorescence upon staining. In DNA damaged cells the resultant image resembles a ‘comet’ with the cellular DNA separated into a head and tail. The head is mainly composed of intact genomic DNA, whereas any fragmented or damaged DNA is concentrated within and towards the tail.

    Variants:

    Clinical Electrophoresis

    Cellulose acetate electrophoresis is an important technique in clinical diagnostics. Gentaur’s CellasGEL range is a complete system solution for research and clinical cellulose acetate electrophoresis applications. The CellasGEL range includes both equipment and consumables to assist in the research and diagnosis of specific disease states.

    Cellas Electrophoresis System

    Cell-acetate-sys-600x600

     

    Product Description

    The ideal tank for standard membrane and gel cellulose acetate techniques, the Cellas electrophoresis system is designed and built to our high quality standard to address both routine clinical and research requirements. Two adjustable supports, which can be positioned anywhere within the tank, readily accommodate different lengths of dry cellulose acetate membrane to a maximum 20cm.

    Variant:

     

    Applicators

    CSL-applicator-600x600

     

    Product Description

    Unlike dry cellulose acetate strips that are restricted to low volume micro tests, CellasGEL’s greater thickness allows tests to be performed on semi-micro and macro scales using a wide range of specialist applicators. Consequently greater sample-volumes may be loaded as larger, but finer bands over a wider front. This reduces sample saturation and aids densitometric band quantitation, thereby improving resolution.

    Variants:

     

    Densitometer

    Turboscan

    Product Description

    A universal densitometer scanner with software capable of reading 144 tests per minute is available for band quantitation following post-electrophoretic staining.

    In terms of flexibility, TurboScan puts all previous systems in the shade. It allows you to create as many individually generated scan masks as you wish. You can also select as many analysis methods as you wish. No other system offers so many options. In clinical work, for example, you can use TurboScan for analysis in the following applications: serum protein electrophoresis, lipo-protein electrophoresis, haemoglobin electrophoresis, Hb-A1c electrophoresis, urine electrophoresis, CSF electrophoresis, Bence-Jones, isoenzymes, immunofixation, isoelectric focusing, multifractional electrophoresis, blots and lots more. It does not matter if you carry out your methods on dry or wet cellulose acetate strips, on agarose and on other gels or you work with micro, semi-micro or macro application. TurboScan uses the latest digital image analysis technology.

    RunVIEW

    Real-time size fractionation and recovery of nucleic acids

    RunVIEW is an innovative new system which can be used to maximise the efficiency of DNA recovery from EtBr and SYBR stained gels by minimising the number of steps involved in postelectrophoretic purification. RunVIEW consists of a MultiSUB™ MSCHOICE system with BluVIEW lid, containing an orange spectral emission filter within its viewing pane, and a base unit with integrated power supply and blue LED gel illuminator.

    RunVIEW

    runVIEW-Set1-600x600

     

    Product Description

     

    Using RunVIEW is simple; first, cast a gel featuring two rows of wells with one matching pair of the preparatory combs supplied, before transferring the blue-light transparent gel tray to the MSCHOICE tank located on the base unit. Add sufficient buffer just to cover the gel, and remove the combs to load the DNA samples into the upper row of wells (loading tier). Replace the lid to connect the MSCHOICE tank to the integrated power supply before applying the voltage and switching on the blue LED gel illuminator. Watch through the bluVIEW lid viewing pane as the samples migrate in real-time to the second row of wells (extraction tier). Once the DNA bands of interest enter the tier, simply stop the power supply, remove the lid and harvest the DNA by pipette.

     

    Track DNA without harmful UV

     

    Blue light is safe and has none of the detrimental effects of UV transillumination, including mutagenesis which can compromise cloning efficiency. RunVIEW’s capacity to provide real-time visualisation of electrophoresis enables DNA to be tracked as it migrates through the gel. This allows the user to judge precisely when the band of interest is ready for extraction.

     

    Save on time-consuming gel elution techniques

     

    Running DNA into a well containing buffer effectively purifies the DNA of agarose, eliminating the need for time-consuming gel excision and purification techniques that also result in sample loss. Once harvested, the DNA needs only to be cleaned by a straightforward ethanol precipitation when it is ready for further digestion or ligation.

     

    No expensive commercial gels

     

    RunVIEW works with standard EtBr, SYBR Green and SYBR Safe gels cast within the 15×7, 15×10 or 15x15cm MSCHOICE gel trays, and therefore does not require expensive precast gels and accessories.

     

    A self-contained system

     

    The base unit, which houses the in-built power supply and blue LED gel illuminator, is compact, dual-voltage and portable, and allows electrophoresis, gel visualisation and extraction to be performed at the bench, without the inconvenience of having to transport gels to a darkroom elsewhere within the laboratory.
