Phase lock gel - Has anyone every used this stuff? (Oct/19/2010 )

Hi all --

I'm looking at trying some of the phase lock gel from 5-Prime (see here). It looks like an elegant solution to getting clean aqueous phase recovery from phenol:chloroform extractions. Has any one use this stuff? What are your experiences with it?


I use these quite a bit when doing phenol-chloroform extractions. Very nice!! You get very high recovery with wonderful purity since all the proteins get locked under the gel.


i never used it but a friend of mine absolutely loved it.
