Biorad PowerPac Basic Electrophoresis Power Supply is good at supplying instruments used in the process of electrophoresis with a constant current and voltage. It has specified values for the constant mode. It is also enabled to engage automatic cross over to a constant voltage and current so that the electrophoresis cells are not damaged in the process. The device is equipped to switch the power supply when the set limit of a non-constant parameter or value is reached without being exceeded, in this manner the non-constant value will then be transformed into the new constant parameter.
Biorad PowerPac Basic Electrophoresis Power Supply has several desirable features: It has four output jacks that enable up to four electrophoresis cells to be connected in parallel. Power output of the device is set at 75 W at the maximum. The output volts can be adjusted by the operator to suit the needs of the specific electrophoresis process; he can adjust it in the intervals of 1V increments from 10 to 300 Volts. The current can also be adjusted with the increments of 1 mA at a time from 4 mA to 400 mA.
The device has a 3-digit LED display used to monitor the values during operations and timing of the process. The timing of the process ranges from 0 to 999 minutes and can be manipulated within that range by the operator. The device can also detect power failure and continue the run after the same is resolved. It has a stackable case besides an adjustable angle of viewing the values or parameters in the display.
