Think about it. If they can sell for this price then you can make it yourself.

What is an electrophoresis tank?
ans: perspex cut into blocks and glued together with a hole drilled in the
flat section that contains the electrode. 
The electrode is a standard male expand connector with a bit of wire
attached to the end.
Here in our mechanical workshop guy's make them for us.

The tools required are a dril, a hacksaw and emmery paper.
