These Nalgene Staining Boxes can be used to stain, fix, destain and handle electrophoresis gels and membranes with less chance of damage than conventional methods. They are equipped with a bottom drain for solution changes without disturbing the box's other fragile contents. They hold most size gels along with 500 to 750mL of liquid.
The polymethylpentene box and polypropylene copolymer cover are useful over a -70° to +70°C (-94° to +158°F) temperature range. The staining boxes have good chemical compatibility to acids, bases and select organic solvents for a versatile range of protocols. An LDPE plug in bottom allows easy drainage of liquid with minimal handling of gel and provides a leak proof seal.
Boxes are stackable and have a handle on each end for safe, easy carrying. The plug won't interfere with cover or contents of boxes on a bench top or shaker. The boxes are microwavable and easy to clean.
