IBI Standard Agarose (Molecular Biology Grade Agarose) products are molecular biology certified for use in standard electrophoresis procedures including nucleic acid, analytical, and preparative electrophoresis and blotting. IBI Standard Agarose is highly refined and purified with strict testing parameters to ensure lot-to-lot consistency. IBI Standard Agarose is a Low EEO agarose with high electrophoresis mobility characteristics.

IBI Standard Agarose is a neutral polysaccharide extracted from the cell walls of certain Rhodophyceae which are also known as agarophyte seaweeds. The structure of the polysaccharide is a galactan, formed by linking agarobioses 1-3, 1-4. This chemical structure gives agarose the capacity to form gels that are very strong even at low concentrations. These gels have a macroreticular structure with a very open mesh which can be adjusted simply by varying the concentration of agarose.
