|Description||Agarose, derived from agar, is a polymeric cross-linked polysaccharide that is mainly used in gel electrophoresis. The lattice bonds formed in the gel allow proteins of different sizes to travel at different speeds down the gel.|

|Could you tell me the melting temperature, and also if this Agarose can be used for DNA, or only for protein?|
Agarose can be used for gel electrophoresis and size exclusion chromatography for DNA, RNA and protein. The melting point of our agarose is 87-89C.
