The x-tracta™ Gel Extractor tool provides a convenient, safe method for removal of agarose gel fragments for further processing. The device removes a 0.13 × 0.33 inch gel piece from agarose gels for easy transfer into a microcentrifuge tube for processing. The x-tracta™ tool eliminates the need for razor blades or scalpels, and its single-use design eliminates the possibility for sample-to-sample cross-contamination.
Note: The x-tracta™ Gel Extractor works best on 0.6–2% analytical grade agarose gels. Please exercise caution if using the x-tracta™ Gel Extractor on Low Melting Point (LMP) agarose gels because the extractor does not work effectively on these due to the gel consistency.
