ROTIPHORESE®50x TAE Buffer ROTIPHORESE® 50x conc.
ROTIPHORESE®50x TAE Buffer contains 2 M Tris, 1 M acetic acid and 50 mM EDTA in distilled, deionised water; pH 8,5.
ROTIPHORESE®TAE buffer is usually used as 1x concentrated solution. TAE buffer is suitable for the separation of DNA fragments of all sizes in gels. For the run of gels for gel extraction of DNA, we recommend using ROTIPHORESE®10x TAE-Puffer light.
TAE buffer has a lower buffer capacity than TBE and can be used with higher voltages, longer gels and larger DNA fragments. The gels heat up during running to a lesser extent than when using the running buffer TBE. DNA migrates in TAE gel about twice as fast as in TBE buffered gels.
