Does anyone have a reoccuring problem executing Gel electrophoresis? - (Oct/03/2012 )

Does anyone have a reoccuring problem executing Gel electrophoresis which in your opinion is due to the purity of used buffers?
Our theory is that small concentrations of impurities in so called "ultrapure" buffer's used in Electrophoresis, can impact the process and results negatively.
We developed the EvoPure® concept which is succesfully implemented in our range of antimicrobials.
Meanwhile we are convinced that this concept can work also for electrophoresis reagents, as a grade that surpasses "ultrapure grade"
and can therefore be applied as a diagnostic tool to backtrack and find "the problems"causing unwanted results.
And soforth adding to a larger output of a R&D department and cost efficiency strategies.


I don't see how this anything new - if you want more pure reagents for gel electrophoresis, you can already buy ultrapure and ACS grade for most reagents. Problems are much much more likely to be coming from the water supply!
