GelAir™ Drying Frames

The GelAir drying system includes two complete drying frames made of a durable, molded plastic base with a stainless-steel top frame. The GelAir drying frames may be added to or removed from the GelAir dryer at any time while it is running. Each frame holds four mini gels or one 20 x 20 cm gel. When the dryer is fully loaded, four large gels or 16 mini gels can be dried at once.

GelAir Assembly Table

The GelAir table is a custom workspace for assembling GelAir drying frames. Any excess liquid is neatly caught by the table, saving cleanup time.

GelAir Cellophane Support

The GelAir cellophane support is precut to fit the GelAir drying frames. Gels dried between two sheets of cellophane are perfectly clear with a glossy finish.

Gel Drying Solution

Bio-Rad's gel drying solution is a pretreatment for polyacrylamide gels that helps prevent cracking during air drying. Just 10 min of equilibration in the solution before drying the gels prevents excessive swelling and cracking of the gels.

Optimized Drying Protocols

Optimized protocols for drying polyacrylamide and agarose gels are provided in the instruction manual. Protocols optimized for the GelAir drying system include drying gels:

  • Between 2 sheets of cellophane
  • On filter paper
  • For autoradiography
  • For fluorography
