Inquiry: I'm interested in purchasing ab 119209. Is this gel compatible with the Biorad mini protean electrophoresis system? Can these gels be used only with the optiblot range of buffers? Cant it be used with the standard Laemli SDS-PAGE buffers( Laemli sample buffer and tris-glycine -SDS run buffer)?
