Gel drying

Gel dryers are a common means of preparing the various electrophoresis gels used in life sciences laboratories for the analysis of DNA, RNA, and proteins. 

The application of a controlled vacuum ensures that the gel is thoroughly dried while minimising the risk of gel breakage. 

 

Considerations for selecting the optimal pump include: 

 

  • Flow/vacuum levels appropriate for the apparatus and media 
  • Oil-free operation with excellent chemical compatibility
  • Adjustable control of vacuum levels 
  • Solvent recovery options at both the inlet and the outlet
