The GelAir Drying System
is perfect for drying polyacrylamide and agarose gels. Dried between two sheets of cellophane, the gels come out completely clear with a glossy finish, ideal for densitometry, photodocumentation, autoradiography, overheads, and long-term storage.
The heated drying chamber works like a convection oven to dry mini gels in 45 minutes or 20 x 20 cm gels in 60 minutes, rivaling the speed of conventional gel dryers that require a vacuum pump. Drying times may vary depending on percentage and thickness of the gel. The dryer holds up to four drying frames at once.Optimized Drying Protocols
