SERVA offer this unique support material for the casting of gels – GEL-FIX™ film for gels and NetFix™ net for blotting.
SERVA offers GEL-FIX™ products as sturdy supports for gels to be incorporated during casting. GEL FIX™ is made from polyester film. Both surfaces of the film are chemically activated providing covalent binding to the gel layer. The gel will adhere to the GEL-FIX™ film not only during electrophoresis but in all subsequent staining and fixing procedures. Thus, it supports the gel layer maintaining exact shape and size (no shrinking, no swelling, no tearing).
Allows convenient, safe handling as the gel is reinforced with the NetFix™ layer. The net is incorporated into the matrix during the casting process, but will not interfere with electrophoresis or blotting. The gel will stay in shape while moving it. The polyester sheet, untreated, is used as backing to support horizontal gels prepared with NetFix™.
