The GD-4534 and GD-5040 vacuum gel dryers are ideal for drying sequencing gels or multiple small format gels.
A cast-aluminium base, overlaid with a porous stainless steel sheet, evenly distributes the heat generated by an 800-Watt heating element, which is set in increments of +/-2°C to a maximum temperature of 90°C.
Both the heating element and vacuum pump are timer-controlled so that the drying time and vacuum pump can be set in 1-minute increments to a maximum of 5 hours, while each unit is lightweight, despite its robust construction, for easy transportation around the laboratory.
Each gel dryer can be either purchased individually or as part of a complete system with the Vacuubrand® MZ 2C + 2 AK gel pump.
GD-4534 and GD-5040 Gel Dryers Features:
GD-4534 - 45 x 34cm (W x L) format - accommodates one TVS1400 gel or up to fifteen 10 x 10cm mini-gels.
GD-5040 - 50 x 40cm (W x L) format - accommodates up to twenty 10 x 10cm mini-gels.
Drying assured within 1 hour – for sequencing gels of dimensions up to 50 x 40cm.
Accurate temperature control - in +/- 2°C increments to a maximum of 90°C.
Accurate timer control - of the heating element and vacuum pump - in +/-1 minute increments to a maximum of 5 hours.
Detachable mylar sheet and porous polyethylene sheet - allow the gel dryer to be adapted for thin polyacrylamide gels and thicker agarose gels.
Stainless steel screen - acts in conjunction with a cast-aluminium base to serve as a porous gel support, uniformly distributing the heat and vacuum to prevent gel cracking during drying.
Translucent silicone rubber overlay - allows the gels to be visualised during the drying process.
Vacuubrand® MZ 2C + 2AK pump available.
