PEG is polyethylene glycol and can be found as such in the Fluka  
catalogue. 6000 is the average molecular weight.

Bisbenzimide is an intercalating fluorescent stain that is also in the  
Fluka catalogue. Be careful with that stuff, you don't want it to  
intercalate into your own DNA. Have somebody train you before working with  
such material.
