CHEF Mapper® XA System

The CHEF Mapper XA system incorporates patented FIGE and AFIGE technologies for superior resolution from 100 bp to 10 Mb, in addition to the features of the CHEF-DR II and the CHEF-DR III systems.

CHEF-DR® III Variable Angle System

The CHEF-DR III variable angle system combines patented PACE technology and proven CHEF technology into one easy-to-use instrument.


The CHEF-DR II system has been streamlined by condensing the functions of Pulsewave 760 technology and the power supply into the CHEF-DR II control module.

CHEF Genomic DNA Plug Kits

CHEF genomic DNA plug kits provide a convenient means for preparing intact, chromosome-sized DNA for PFGE.

Pulsed Field Standards and Agaroses

Bio-Rad offers Certified™ Megabase Agarose, Certified Pulsed-Field Agarose, and standards for applications from FIGE separation of cosmid inserts to separation of the largest chromosomes. Choose from recombinant DNA ladders or genomic digests.
