Sample Application Devices
Super Z, Super Z-12, Super CK, and Macro Z applicators are used with Titan III cellulose acetate. Tips are photo-etched stainless steel and independently suspended to eliminate application artifacts. The only pressure exerted on the cellulose acetate is the weight of the tip. Super Z and Z-12 applicators hold 0.25 μL of sample; Super CK applicator holds 0.5 μL. Super Z and Super CK applicators apply 8 samples simultaneously, Super Z-12 applies 12 samples. Macro Z applicator, available in 4-sample or 6-sample size, provides a wider electrophoresis pattern. Use Zip Zone Prep (Cat. No. 5090) to clean tip.
