The QuikPrep® ElectroPrep Electrodialysis System is an extremely versatile patented sample preparation technology that is capable of separating samples by both size and charge. It is ideal for the rapid purification of proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and other biomolecules. It provides faster dialysis times due to movement of charged molecules in an electric field during dialysis, thus combining electrophoresis with dialysis. With a run-time of 5 to 10 minutes, ElectroPrep provides speed and convenience, even at the very low currents (5 to 10 mA) used with this system.
It is ideal for the rapid purification of proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates andother biomolecules. Membranes of different MWCO (molecular weight cut off), from 100 to 300,000 Daltons, can be used for selective buffer exchange, dialysis, filtration, concentration, fractionation and elution.
The ElectroPrep System uses at least one Dialyzer Unit to perform a sample electrodialysis. A basic Dialyzer Unit is comprised of a dialyzer chamber, dialysis membranes at one or both ends of the chamber and two end caps. Dialyzer Units can be configured in a number of more complex ways to perform different applications using a combination of components including Dialysis Chambers, Unions and Link Chambers. When choosing membranes to assemble configurations, it is important to choose the correct diameter membrane for each component.
