Sage Science BluePippin

The BluePippin is a preparative electrophoresis platform that separates and extracts DNA fragments.  Using pre-cast gel cassettes, DNA is automatically collected in buffer according to software-input size ranges.  The BluePippin features pulsed-field electrophoresis capabilities that enable accurate collection of kilobase-sized fragments.  Cassettes are available for DNA size selections between 50 bp and 50 kb.

Specifications:

  • Four types of gel cassettes: 0.75%, 1.5%, 2.0% & 3.0% agarose
  • Cassette capacity: 4 sample lanes and 1 size standard lane
  • Load capacity: up to 10 µg with 200 ng optical sensitivity
  • Pulsed-field electrophoresis collects fractions up to 50 kb
  • Individual sample channels with collection chambers eliminate cross-contamination
  • Automated collection of PCR bands or restriction fragments
  • Provides narrow fragment size distributions
