Cleaver VS20WAVE Maxi

Faster Set Up

  • Fewer Screws  novel vertical screw-clamp technology reduces the number of screws required for set up compared to traditional large-format systems, dramatically reducing assembly time
  • No Top Tank Assembly – A built-in inner buffer chamber within the PAGE insert allows set up to be completed without inclusion of a top tank or upper buffer chamber

The new VS20 WAVE Maxi System is Cleaver Scientifics latest product innovation for large format vertical gel electrophoresis. Designed to perform a variety of separations, including first and second-dimension SDS-PAGE, native, preparative, gradient and high-resolution nucleic acid electrophoresis, plus capillary tube gel IEF and electroblotting, the VS20 WAVE is one of the most versatile maxi vertical systems available.

By introducing innovative, new vertical screw-clamp technology within the PAGE insert only four screws are now necessary to secure as many 20x20cm gels. This gives the VS20 WAVE Maxi the selective advantage of a much faster set up speed compared to competitor products whose traditional clamping configurations require as many as 24 screws to secure just two glass plates. In addition, the WAVEs vertical screw-clamp configuration distributes pressure evenly along the height of the gel rather than in the centre to eliminate plate bowing and gel compression, but still maintains a leak-proof seal during casting; while the ergonomic wave-like design of the PAGE insert aids both handling and set up.

Whatever your requirements are the WAVE can be made to meet them. Regardless of whether it is running 2 or 4 gels, electroblotting, and IEF using capillary tube gels or IPG strips, all of these techniques may be performed using the same omni-purpose unit while retaining the benefits of large format electrophoresis, such as extended separation distances, greater sample throughput and superior resolution.
