Agarose is a polysaccharide, generally extracted from certain types of red seaweed, that is widely considered the best material available. Agarose is one of the two principal components of agar and is purified by removing its other component, agaropectin. It is frequently used in molecular biology for the separation of large molecules, especially DNA, by electrophoresis. as an an inherently soft material, it requires a sophisticated emulsification and crosslinking technology to ensure excellent pressure flow performance.
