Low Melting (LM) Agaroses are derivatized by organic synthesis which generates methoxylate groups from the basic agarose structure. The main properties of these agaroses are their low melting and gelling temperatures when compared with standard agaroses.
LM Agarose is a recommended agarose for elecrophoresis of DNA fragments ≥ 10000 bp, tissue/cell culture and viral plaque assays. LM Agaroseis characterized by lower gel strength and highest clarity compared to standard agaroses.
The low melting temperature allows the recovery of undamaged nucleic acids below the denaturation temperature. The low gelling temperature ensures that the agarose will be in a liquid state at a temperature range where in-Gel manipulations can be performed without prior extraction of the DNA from the gel slice.
