GelAir Gel Dryer



Gel Drying Made Easy

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 the 8 green drying frame clamps.
6. Slide the drying frame into the dryer.

The GelAir drying system is designed to preserve polyacrylamide and agarose gels. Consisting of a heated chamber that works like a convection oven to dry mini gels between two sheets of cellophane, the GelAir dryer works in 45 min. Once dry, gels are crystal clear with a glossy finish and are ideal for use in densitometry or as photodocumentation, overheads, or long-term storage in laboratory notebooks.

The GelAir system is easy to use, maintenance free, and fast. The complete system includes the GelAir dryer, two drying frames with 16 clamps, assembly table, cellophane, Bio-Rad’s gel drying solution, and an instruction manual with optimized drying protocols.
