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 minimizing 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
