FastGene® Agarose was developed for a rapid separation of DNA fragments, such as PCR products, plasmid DNA, as well as RNA fragments. The very high quality of  FastGene® Agarose makes it suitable for molecular biology whilst the high purity of the agarose leads to an excellent transparency and a low background. This is especially important to obtain sharp and well defined DNA and/or RNA bands with the highest sensitivity in the low molecular weight range. The high gel strength makes is suitable for producing gels from 0,75 % – 2 % and a separation range of 250 bp to 23 kb is guaranteed. The lack of DNases and RNases is assayed as well as the background fluorescence with Ethidium Bromide is determined. The FastGene Agarose tablets are extremely easy to use and are the ultimate in convenience, simply add one tablet  to 50 ml gel running buffer and the result is a 1% gel. One box contains 100 tablets. l Fig. 1. Comparison of three different agaroses in regard to resolution of small fragments: 52 x 60 mm gels, 4% agarose; 100V 20 min.; 1x TAE buffer   The detection of small bands is only possible with high quality agarose. Two gels were prepared using the FastGene® Agarose and a low quality from competitor C. The ladder was stained with Midori Green Direct. Fig. 2: Detection of small bands using high quality FastGene® Agarose and Competitor C‘s Agarose. All seven bands from the ladder are visible when using FastGene® Agarose. When compraing the green box to the red box, Competitor C‘s agarse does not show the lowest three bands.
