Bis-acrylamide is the most frequently used cross-linking agent for preparing polyacrylamide gels. When it polymerizes with acrylamide, it creates a network of chains, rather than linear chains, and helps maintain the firmness of gel. A 2% w/v bis-acrylamide solution is commonly used for most electrophoresis applications.
Bis-acrylamide cross-links with acrylamide to form polyacrylamide gels for electrophoresis. Changing the ratio of bis-acrylamide to acrylamide controls the pore size of polyacrylamide gels.
