The Sage Science Blue Pippin is a preparative electrophoresis platform that automatically separates and extracts DNA fragments based on preselected fragment size or size range. Manual gel extraction is not necessary. Using pre-cast disposable gel cassettes with internal size markers, DNA is automatically collected in buffer according to the size range entered at the start. The system is equipped with pulsed-field electrophoresis for resolving large DNA. Cassettes are available for extractions between 50 - 50,000 bp. Typical run times (4-5 samples per run) are between 50 and 100 minutes.
