Ammonium persulfate (APS) is a catalyst for acrylamide gel polymerization. It is also used in conjunction with TEMED (sc-29111) to promote polymerization of Acrylamide/bis-Acrylamide gels. Ready-to-use Acrylamide solutions are available for your convenience: Acrylamide Solution, 40% (sc-3721) and N,N′-Methylenebis-Acrylamide, 2% (sc-3719).
