1. Agarose (agarbiose)
This linear galactan is created by purifying agar ; when it is heated and cooled, it forms a gel that is used as a support for many types of electrophoresis and immunodiffusion . A typical gel is about 1% agarose. Agarose is more porous than acrylamide and is sold in different grades; the lower its sulfate content, the more highly purified it is.

2. Agarose gel electrophoresis
A type of electrophoresis that uses a matrix of highly purified agar to separate large DNA and RNA molecules (generally around 20,000 nucleotide s in size).
