The XCell SureLock® Mini-Cell allows you to run Novex® mini-gels quickly, easily, and leak-free without any clamps or grease. The XCell line of mini-cells has always distinguished itself by being simple, sturdy, and convenient. The tradition continues with the patented XCell SureLock® Mini-Cell. The incorporation of a gel tension wedge, in place of the rear wedge used on earlier models, makes the XCell SureLock® Mini-Cell the easiest-to-use mini-cell on the market.
How the system works
The XCell SureLock® Mini-Cell holds gels firmly with a simple gel tension wedge. When the lever on the gel tension wedge is pushed forward into the locked position, an even, horizontal force is generated. This seals the gel/buffer core assembly firmly into position in the lower buffer chamber (see figure). The positive locking action of the gel tension wedge ensures a trouble-free, leak-free gel run every time.
Easy set-up procedure
The XCell SureLock® Mini-Cell can be easily set up in just three simple steps (see figure). The XCell SureLock® Mini-Cell is available separately or as a part of a complete package to fit your electrophoresis needs (see table).
