Bis-acrylamide is the most frequently used cross-linking agent for protein separation applications in polyacrylamide gels. TOKU-E offers two forms of bis-acrylamide: bis-acrylamide (B011, powder) and bis-acrylamide solution, 2% (B031). Bis-acrylamide powder is soluble in water (20 mg/mL) and bis-acrylamide solution, 2% is a standard solution used in most electrophoresis applications.
|Microbiology Applications||Acrylamide and bis-acrylamide can be synthetically modified into new polymers and compounds with antibacterial properties.|
|Electrophoresis Applications||Bis-acrylamide is used to create cross-links between acrylamide to generate polyacrylamide gel in electrophoresis gels. The ratio of bis-acrylamide to acrylamide manipulates the porous characteristics of the polyacrylamide gel.|
|Impurities||DNAese, RNAese and Protease: None detected |
ACRYLIC ACID: Not more than 0.001%
