The Gel Company, based in San Francisco, has introduced the MicroGEL rapid electrophoresis system. The system relies on a standard 1 x 3 inch microslide using membrane comb sample injection, which minimizes load volumes to as low as 0.3 µl per sample. The gels can be visualized in any microarray scanning system or by traditional staining methods, the company said.
