Starting with an empty box

  • Fill with TBE until it covers the gel holding tray.
  • Add 40 uL of ethidium bromide if your gels don't already have it within
    • If your buffer already has some ethidium bromide but it needs more, 20 uL is probably good.
  • Load sample
    • 1.7 uL of a PCR product is usually plenty
  • Load ladder
    • If using MassRuler, 4 uL is good for skinny lanes.
  • Run @ 110 V for 20 min and check the gel.
    • 40 min is pretty safe for 0.7 - 1% agarose gels
