Sample Application

Successful electrophoresis requires application of correct amount of sample with clean applicators and no air bubbles. Many gel electrophoresis for manual sample application include a sample application template to lay over the gel, a micropipet, or a thin-wire applicator. Polyacrylamide gels will have wells in the gel for the sample. Sterile pipet tips are required when applying DNA and RNA specimens.
