The MiniOne™ System is a safe, classroom friendly, compact system that replaces your traditional electrophoresis running tank, power supply and UV transilluminator. The unit employs an interlocking magnet safety feature on the hood which keeps users safe from electric shock.
To ensure complete safety, The MiniOne™ does not use ethidium bromide, UV, or high voltage. The unit employs a non-hazardous stain called GelGreen that fluoresces in blue light, so you can eliminate EtBr and UV from the classroom environment.
Most other electrophoresis systems use platinum wires which erode and break over time, but The MiniOne™ system uses a carbon electrode that is more durable.
Making the gel is fast and easy for teachers and students. Just microwave the gel cups for 30 seconds and pour into the casting stand. The amount of agarose used to make the gel and the amount of buffer used to run the gel in the MiniOne™ is half of what is normally used, making it the best economical choice.
The MiniOne™ Casting System features a two compartment molded enclosure so you can cast two gels at the same time. Don’t worry about tape or gaskets. Just drop your gel trays in and pour the agarose. The casting system is designed in a way where the combs use the gel tray as the reference point. Say goodbye to bottomless wells.
Loading a gel can be hard, but seeing the well is most of the battle. See the wells better by simply turning on the blue light. The blue LEDs provides a contrast so you can see the outline of the wells you are loading into. Make sure all your samples go into the well and not in the buffer!
The MiniOne™ offers students the opportunity to watch the DNA bands migrate and see their results in real-time. You can go from experiment to full display in 15 minutes, complete with a read-out that is picture ready. The revolutionary MiniOne™ makes DNA analysis easier and a more complete experience.
Students enjoy the excitement of taking pictures on their smartphones to share and compare with their classmates. It’s easy to take pictures of DNA results with the MiniOne! Compare gel pictures on social media — use #theminione to share!
