We have developed a new, labour-saving method of preparation, handling and treatment of DNA-containing agarose plugs for pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE). A plastic mould in which plugs are formed and supported during DNA purification and digestion was designed and successfully tested in a prototype device.
