Bio-Rad's flexible Gel Drying Systems accommodate multiple gel types and allow optimization of drying conditions to minimize gel cracking.
Bio-Rad Gel Drying Systems include
• Model 583 and HydroTech Pump Gel Drying Complete Systems
The Model 583 gel dryer accommodates sequencing gels or multiple standard size gels (16 mini gels, 9 Criterion gels, 2 large format gels, or 1 sequencing gel).
• Model 583 Gel Dryer
The Model 583 gel dryer has a 35 x 45 cm drying surface, which is large enough to fit up to 16 mini gels, 9 Criterion gels, 2 large format gels, or 1 sequencing gel.
• HydroTech Vacuum Pump
This pump is perfect for gel drying and for many other applications requiring a continuous vacuum of greater than 29 inches of mercury (23.4 Torr). The pump works well with the Model 583 gel dryer.
• Double-Up Gel Drying Systems
The double-up gel dryer rack accommodates two gel dryers up to 60 x 50 cm. The bottom shelf is on interlocking glides that allow full extension and easy access to the gel dryer's surface.
• Model 583 Gel Drying Supports
Available supports for use with the Model 583 gel dryer include: filter paper backing for stained gels, cellophane membrane backing, clear membrane for transmission densitometry, and more.
• GelAir Drying System
The GelAir drying system is perfect for drying polyacrylamide and agarose gels between two sheets of cellophane. Ideal for densitometry, photodocumentation, overheads, and long-term storage.
