agarose gel electrophoresis
Posted 08 April 2011 - 03:39 AM
After extracting DNA from whole blood,I resolved DNA on 0.8% agarose gel stained with ethidium bromide.After resolving,I visualized clear bands under UV light.Then I stored the gel in 1X TAE Buffer.After a period of 2 hours,bands disappeared.Can anyone please suggest me how to store agarose gel for atleast one day with intact bands?

How much TAE are you storing your gels in? I think you should be able to store it at 4oC (in a cling film with a little TAE) for a day. What do u need the bands for? Its intact DNA. Cant you use it from the tube directly ?
NEW!!!! Wonder why this was not part of Chemistry class, ever! on CoffeeTableScience!!!!

That is....if she posts at all.
