GelAir Drying Overview

Easy gel drying with the GelAir dryer:

1. Place a sheet of cellophane over the plastic drying frame on the assembly table.

2. Lay a gel on top of the cellophane.

3. Place another sheet of cellophane over the gel.

4. Place the metal square frame on top.

5. Clamp the drying frames together using 8 green drying frame clamps, and slide the drying frame into the dryer.

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.
