The Gel Drying Kit provides a convenient and economical alternative to expensive and sometimes problematic gel dryers and vacuum systems. Both polyacrylamide and agarose gels may be dried using this kit. Gels are placed between two moistened sheets of Gel Drying Film, clamped between the Gel Drying Frames provided and allowed to dry overnight. Gels dried in this manner can be viewed easily while drying and, once dry, are protected from damage and can be stored in laboratory notebooks. The Gel Drying Film is essentially gas-impermeable when dry.
A set of Gel Drying Frames will accommodate one standard 16 × 16cm polyacrylamide gel, three 7 × 9cm minigels or one 7 × 10cm agarose gel.
