-**APPLICATION NOTE – ELECTROPHORESIS**+C30xx Digital communication
  
-**CONSORT bvba**, parklaan 36, B2300 Turnhout, Belgium+====== Introduction ======
  
-tel:​+32/​14/​411279 • fax:​+32/​14/​429179 • e-mail: [[mailto:​support@consort.be|support@consort.be]]+The new range of electrochemical instrumentation C30xx from **Consort**has been completely redesigned and is significantly improved compared to his predecessorsThe digital communication allows more direct commands to be able to read faster and more accurate.
  
-**POWER SUPPLIES**+====== Digital ports ======
  
-**What ​are the relations between VoltageCurrent, Power and Resistance?​**+The devices ending on a '​0' ​are equipped with an USB and a RS232 portthe device ending on '​1'​ are equipped with an Ethernet ​and a RS232 port. 
  
-Power (W) = Voltage (V) x Current (A)+The Ethernet systems require some set up which is explained in the //Ethernet Configuration document //which can be downloaded from our website[[http://​www.consort.be/​|http://​www.consort.be]],​ section //​Downloads>​Software.//​
  
-Resistance (W) = Voltage (V) Current (A)+The USB driver can be downloaded from our website [[http://​www.consort.be/​|http://​www.consort.be]],​ section //​Downloads>​Software./​/
  
-**How does power supply react after pressing RUN?**+After installing the Ethernet or USB driver, the instrument will appear, when connected, as serial COMx port. Set the communication software to use this port. The default serial communication settings are 19200 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, No parity. ​
  
-The internal generator will start building ​up the high voltage at the output terminals while voltage and current are constantly measured and power calculated. When one of the pre-set parameters is exceeded, ​the generator stops and will keep that parameter constant+The device allows a baudrate ​up to 115200 bps. Most computers can operate at this high speed which might be interesting especially for transferring a large data table to the computer.
  
-**How important is the resistance of an electrophoresis unit?**+====== Command protocol to send ======
  
-The resistance of an electrophoresis unit depends on its size, gel thickness, amount of buffer, buffer conductivity and temperature. This resistance will normally decrease in time due to a slowly increasing temperature. Electrophoresis units which have a resistance below the minimum load resistance of a power supply will trigger an alarm! Read the output voltage and current during a run to measure the resistance and use above formula to calculate the value.+Commands are sent according ​to the next protocol:

-**What about connecting more than one unit to the same power supply?**+====== Command specifications + examples ======
  
-The outlets being in parallel each electrophoresis unit will be supplied with exactly the same voltage. However, current and power may differ due to differences between them even when exactly the same model, gel, buffers, etc... are used. Therefore, it is recommended to run several electrophoresis units only in the constant voltage mode on the same power supply.+===== Conventions =====
  
-**HORIZONTAL GEL ELECTROPHORESIS**+  ​The examples are written in a coloured fixed pitch font (Courier).  
 +  ​The blue coloured text in the example highlights the text sent by the computer (see [[#​3.Command protocol to send|outline|Command protocol to send]]).  
 +  ​The magenta coloured text highlights the answer received from the device (see [[#​4.Command protocol to receive|outline|Command protocol to receive]]).  
 +  ​Green text highlights additional comments or clarifications which are not sent or received.

 +===== Print Measurements =====
  
-**Gasket too tight or too loose?**+Send the command '?' to request the last measurements.
  
-Simply remove the gaskets from the ends of the gel trays and refit into the grooveRefit with the gasket protruding slightly from the ends if the gel tray was too tight or with the gasket fitted below the top edges if the gasket was too loose.+e.g
  
-**How to select the gel concentration?**+>?
  
-The range of fragment sizes to be separated will determine the choice of agarose concentration for a gel. Typical agarose concentration is 0.5% to 3.0%. For large DNA fragments low-percentage gels are required, while for small DNA fragments, high-percentage gels are recommended. Weak gels (0.5% agarose) should be electrophoresed at low temperatures (e.g. -4°C).+<?{
  
-Agarose gels of 0.75% to 1.0%, for routine electrophoresis,​ are recommended for a wide range of separations (0.15 to15 kb)2...4% agarose gels are usually selected for PCR fragment resolution. If the gel has to be subsequently photographed,​ thin gels (to 3 mm) with low-percentage agarose are better than thick or high-percentage gels. The latter produce increased opaqueness and autofluorescence.+31/​05/​2010 ​15:00:18 7.215 pH 18.2 °C
  
-**How to select the electrophoresis buffer?**+0.73 ng/l 18.2 °C
  
-TAE buffer provides optimal resolution of fragments >4 kb in length, while for 0.1 to 3 kb fragments, TBE buffer should be selected. TBE has both a higher buffering capacity and lower conductivity than TAE and therefore should be used for high-voltage electrophoresis. Additionally,​ TBE buffer generates less heat than TAE at an equivalent voltage and does not allow a significant pH drift. Note: because of its lower buffering capacity, TAE should be circulated or mixed from time to time for full-length electrophoresis,​ especially at higher voltages.+===== Keyboard =====
  
-**How to select ​the enhance resolution?​**+With the commands '​-'​ and '​+',​ it is possible ​to disable and enable the keyboard so the user cannot interact while the software communicates. This way the software can control the device completely. The keyboard is automatically re-enabled when the device restarts.
  
-2 x TAE buffer can be used in units with low buffer volume to enhance resolution during extended runs.+e.g
  
-**What about the influence of temperature?​**+>-
  
-Electrophoresis at high voltages produces heat. Additionally,​ high-conductivity buffers such as TAE generate more heat than low-conductivity buffers. Care should be taken in agarose gel electrophoresis with voltages greater than 175 V, as heat build up can generate gel artifacts such as S-shaped migration fronts, and in extended electrophoresis runs, can even melt the agarose gel. With high voltage electrophoresis,​ the use of low-melting-point agarose gels should be avoided.+<-i /* the keyboard is now disabled */
  
-**What about the DNA mobility?**+>+
  
-DNA fragments as small as 1 kb or less can be separated using agarose gel electrophoresis. For fragments smaller than 0.1 kb, polyacrylamide gels are more suited.+<+g /* the keyboard is now enabled */
  
-**What about the RNA mobility?**+===== Key Simulation =====
  
-Either before or during electrophoresis,​ RNA should be denatured. For example, RNA fragments which have denatured with glyoxal ​and dimethyl sulphoxide can be separated on neutral agarose gels, or RNA can be fractionated on agarose gels containing methylmercuric hydroxide or formaldehyde. RNA samples usually require longer runs or buffers that are easily depletedso it is necessary ​to circulate ​the buffer. Northern analyses should not normally be run on a mini gel tank.+With the commands '​B' ​and an additional code (see table below), it is possible ​to simulate ​the keyboard.
  
-**Separation performance?​**+As soon as a '​B'​ command has been received, the __keyboard will be automatically disabled__ and should be enabled again with the '​+'​ command when required.
  
-Gel concentration,​ running buffer, voltage, temperature,​ conformation,​ and the presence of ethidium bromide all affect separation results. To establish progress of double-stranded DNA, ethidium bromide (0.5 µg/ml) is often added to running buffer.+Table Key codes:
  
-The dye’s fluorescence properties allows the band to be visualised under a UV lamp. However, ethidium bromide may slow the DNA migration rate by approx. 15%. As an alternative,​ after electrophoresis,​ the gel may be stained in an ethidium bromide solution ​(0.5 µg/ml H20for 15 to 60 minutes and then viewed or photographed on a UV trans-illuminator.+^Code (binary!)^Key|

-Note: staining time should be minimised to prevent small nucleic acid fragments from diffusing out of the gelBackground fluorescence of unbound ethidium bromide can be minimised through destaining by soaking the gel for 5 minutes in 0.01 M MgCl2, or for 30 minutes in de-ionised water. Caution! Ethidium bromide is a known mutagen. Always wear gloves when handling. Wear UV safety goggles and protect skin when using any UV light source.+e.g.

-**How to exctract the tube gel?**

 +===== Set Display Output ===== 
 + 
 +The device has several display outputs which are normally selected by the user manually with the arrow keys. It is required to set the correct channel on the display to start the calibration or to request some info like the GLP report.  
 + 
 +Use the command '​F'​ + (channel number) to set a specific channel measurement on the display. The display with measurement information of all channels has the number 0, the channels start from 1, the temperature displays start from 1+number of channels. 
 + 
 +e.g.To set the display of CH2 
 + 
 +3E 46 02 86 0D 0A

 +===== Set Parameters Data log ===== 
 + 
 +The command '​D'​ allows to adjust the data log parameters while measuring. Four additional bytes (32 bits) are required: 
 + 
 +  * Highest bit: enable data log function 
 +  * 2<​sup>​nd</​sup>​ highest bit: log continuously when 1. The oldest data can be overwritten. 
 +  * The next 14 bits is the Interval of time in seconds, max 14400 = 4 hours. 
 +  * The next bit is irrelevant 
 +  * The lowest 15 bits is the maximum number of data points to log. The device is technically limited to 12000 points. 
 +e.g.Enable the data log function, have the values logged at an interval of 15 seconds and let it end when 10000 values have been logged. 
 + 
 +3E 44 80 0F 27 10 48 0D 0A 
 + 
 +3C 44 80 0D 0A 
 + 
 +Enable the data log function, have the values logged at an interval of 1 minute and keep only the last 60 values in memory. 
 + 
 +3E 44 C0 3C 00 3C BA 0D 0A 
 + 
 +3C 44 80 0D 0A 
 + 
 +Mind that these settings remain valid only as long as the measurement mode has not been canceled due to entering the settings or a calibration. The number of data points to log will then be reset to its maximum. Therefore it is advised to resend the settings when returning in measurement mode. 
 + 
 +It is not really advised to log data continuously when less then 12000 points need to be logged. This leads to mixed time points in the data table. 
 + 
 +===== Request Data table as text ===== 
 + 
 +The command '​L'​ is the same as manually selecting DATA>​PROCESS>​SEND from the SETTINGS menu.  
 + 
 +It is required to use this command during a measurement display screen. This can be achieved by sending a [[#6.7.Set Display Output|outline|Set Display Output]] command first. 
 +

 +===== Request Data table as binary data ===== 
 + 
 +The command '​l'​ allows to read the data table as binary information. This is a lot faster but requires the receiver program to decode the information. 
 + 
 +Additional required information are: 
 + 
 +  * a 4 byte long number, the start record number, 
 +  * a 4 byte long number, the number of records to send. 
 +The device will first return the number of records which will be actually returned. This number can be different from the requested number depending on the amount of available records starting from the given start record number. 
 +

 +//**__Data record structure__**//​ 
 + 
 +The returned information from a data record contains 10 bytes with the following information. 
 + 
 +Here's a description with the data from the first record as example: 3C CF 01 0D 0A 82 A7 D2 2B 00 
 + 
 +or binary written: 
 + 
 +  * First 2 bytes = The measured value. 
 +    * 3C CF or //15567//: This value needs to be multiplied with the 'Data value multiplicator',​ which can be found in the [[#​7.Measurement formats|outline|measurement format table]], to obtain a 32 bit measurement value based on 10000 as unit value. The required measurement format can be retrieved from the lower 6 bits from the 9<​sup>​th</​sup>​ data byte.\\ ​  * Next 2 bytes contain the channel number minus 1 and the measured temperature:​ 
 +    * highest 4 bits (//b15 //→ //b12//) = channel number minus 1\\ The example is 0, this is the lowest channel number CH1. 
 +    * lowest 12 bits (//b11// → //b0//) = temperature. \\ In the example: 1 0D or //269//, this value has an offset of the minimal temperature (-//​5,​0//​°C) and needs to be multiplied with the 'Data value multiplicator'​ for °C, which can be found in the [[#​7.Measurement formats|outline|measurement format table]], to obtain a 32 bit measurement value based on //10000// as unit value. The resulting °C value is //​(269-50)*1000//​ = //219000// or //​21,​9//​°C.\\ ​  * The 5<​sup>​th</​sup>​ Byte contains the 'out of range flag' and the lowest 2 digits of the year. 
 +    * The highest bit is 1 when the value or the temperature is out of range\\ In the example: 0, No out of range measurements. 
 +    * The lowest seven bits is a number for 0 to 99, indicating the last 2 digits of the year\\ In the example: 0A, year 10 (lowest 2 digits from 2010).\\ ​  * The 6<​sup>​th</​sup>​ , 7<​sup>​th</​sup>​ , 8<​sup>​th</​sup>​and 9<​sup>​th</​sup>​ byte (32 bits, starting from //b31// down to //b0//) contain the date/time information and the measurement format range.\\ In the example, this information is binary: 1000 0010 1010 0111 1101 0010 0010 1011 
 +    * b31 → b28:4 bits with the Month (0..12), in example 1000 = //8//, the month August 
 +    * b27 → b22:6 bits with the Minutes (0..59), in example 0010 10 = //10// 
 +    * b21 → b16:6 bits with the Seconds (0..59), in example 10 0111 = //39 //

 +===== Store User table ===== 
 + 
 +It is also possible to store your user tables with the '​u'​ command. It is however required to follow the next procedure:​ 
 + 
 +  - Set the device in the SETTINGS menu mode using the '​B'​ command. 
 +  - Send the [[#​6.16.Device Information|outline|Device Information]] command code with the first unlock code 0xC7. 
 +  - Send the [[#​6.16.Device Information|outline|Device Information]] command code with the second unlock code 0x63. 
 +  - Send the table number, table type and the table information in the same format as one can read them with the '​U'​ command (mind the capital size or lower case of the command codes!). This table format requires : (see examples in [[#​6.21.Read User table|outline|Read User Table]])\\ \\ - 6 bytes for the table name,\\ - 10 bytes with table information,​\\ - 48 bytes with table values, also required for EC for which the last 20 bytes are irrelevant !\\ - 1 byte with the measurement format of the table values (Important for EC!) 
 +e.g.Store the table 0,01 M KCl as EC table nr 3 
 + 
 +3E 46 00 84 0D 0A/* Step1: '>​F'​+ 0x00 = command to get into the SETTINGS menu */

 + 
 +3E 49 63 EA 0D 0A/* Step3: '>​I'​+ 0x63 (99) = Second step of unlock code */ 
 + 
 +3C 49 85 0D 0A/* device confirmation */ 
 + 
 +3E 75 02 01 /* Step4: '>​u'​+ 0x02 (= table number __3__)+ 0x01 (=EC table) */ 
 + 
 +53 54 44 31 00 00 00 00 C3 50 00 05 57 30 06 02 /* table name + min/max°C+ ... */ 
 + 
 +00 88 B8 00 00 9B A3 C0 00 AF 04 B0 00 C3 01 E0 /* first 4 values */ 
 + 
 +00 D7 9B 50 00 EC D1 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 /* next 4 values */ 
 + 
 +00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 /* last 4 values */ 
 + 
 +07 /* Measurement format */ 
 + 
 +44 0D 0A /* checksum + CR + LF */ 
 + 
 +3C 75 B1 0D 0A/* device confirmation */ 
 + 
 +Mind that all these table elements (name, min/max, values, format, irrelevant values/​bytes,​ ...) are required but only the 12 values and the measurement format for conductivity tables will be stored. The measurement format cannot be changed for pH tables. The names, min/max temperature,​ number of table values... cannot be changed.  
 + 
 +There is no control on the 12 table values or the measurement format when writing the table. The incorrectness of these are solely the responsibility of the user. 
 + 
 +===== Restart the device ===== 
 + 
 +Send the Command '>​R'​ followed by '​ESET'​+Checksum to restart the device. There will be no answer given. 
 + 
 +e.g. 
 + 
 +3E 52 45 53 45 54 C1 0D 0A /* '​RESET'​ + Checksum + CR + LF */ 
 + 
 +The device restarts without any answer ! 
 + 
 +====== Measurement formats ====== 
 + 
 +The measurements returned as 32 bit numbers are based on the integer 10000 as unit value. The returned format number indicates which value is represented according to the following table. The values should rounded against the given format. 
 + 
 +e.g. 1. The measured 32 bit value is //86932//, the given format number is //43//which is 0,01 pH according to the table. This value represents the measurement of //8,69 pH////.// 
 + 
 +2. The measured 32 bit value is //​1006325//,​ the given format number is //9//which is 0,1 mS/cm according to the table. This value represents the measurement of //100,6 mS/​cm////​.//​
