Agarose - General and Green Choice

Agarose, used in nucleic acid electrophoresis for DNA and RNA band separation, isolation and purification is one of the most common reagents found in almost every laboratory across the nation.

The main criteria for choosing an excellent multi-purporse agarose product are:

  • High band resolution -- to separate bands of similar molecular weight
  • Low gel background -- to increase clarity of faint bands
  • Low EEO -- to sharpen and increase definition of smaller bands

MIDSCI’s Bullseye Agarose line provides the top criteria for excellence in nucleic acid electrophoresis applications.


MIDSCI offers two choices: the Premium General Purpose 2 (GP2) Agarose and the Environmentally Friendly Green Choice (GC) Agarose for superior band resolution at an affordable price. The GC Agarose is manufactured in a longer air-dryed process without the use of harmful toxic agents.

Bullseye Agarose GP2 and GC offer the following features:

  • General purpose electrophoresis and blotting
  • Highly refined and purified
  • Excellent separation, resolution, and clarity
  • Low absorption and reduced background
  • Low EEO / increased electrophoretic mobility
  • High hysteresis, improved thermal stability
