The QSH Lab-Pal Dual Gel horizontal electrophoresis unit is specially designed for the educational market based on years of tested and proven performance in the research market. The QSH Lab-Pal maintains all key features to enhance performance on safety, durability, ease of use, and cost of operation.

The QSH Lab-Pal incorporates a patented vented lid that allows heat to escape from the gel rig which improves the resolution of faster gel runs. Additional safety is incorporated into the lid with the patented gravity electrical connectors which disconnect the power to the unit when the lid is removed.

The unique, dedicated dual casting system allows casting independent from the unit while providing maximum efficiency between lab partners. The dual gel casting system eliminates the need for casting tape. The QSH Lab-Pal dual gel casting system also allows for numerous gel slides to be cast and stored for later use (when covered with buffer and refrigerated). This feature helps to minimize classroom gel casting time and maximize precious classroom teaching time.

The QSH Lab-Pal is constructed of durable cast acrylic that resists cracking and warping for years of use.

The operation manual includes casting procedures, replacement parts, and helpful hints to maximize your unit’s performance in your teaching lab.

The IB50000 has a patented vented lid. Patent# 5,779,869.

  • Technical Information

Characteristics of Horizontal Electrophoresis Units IBI horizontal systems are constructed of 3/8” thick cast acrylic, the heaviest in the industry. No warping occurs when the system gets hot, and there are no crazy cracks in the plastic after time. The buffer tank on the IBI systems can be completely re-built, by the end user, in minutes. IBI horizontal systems have a 4-year limited warranty on the buffer tank. IBI horizontal systems allow the user to cast gels OUTSIDE the buffer tank, this is much easier and allows user to cast a gel while a gel is running. IBI systems are 20% less expensive and come with casting system and combs. This info applies to all of IBI horizontal systems against nearly all of our other competitors systems.
