HydroTech Vacuum Pump
HydroTech Vacuum Pump

The HydroTech vacuum pump uses ordinary tap water, not vacuum pump oil, eliminating messy oil changes and hazardous waste.

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). With variable temperature control and three preprogrammed cycles, drying conditions can be optimized to prevent gel cracking. The HydroTech™ vacuum pump is a unique, environmentally friendly vacuum pump. The gel dryer and vacuum pump can be purchased together as an economical system or individually.
