Vacuum Gel Dryers

The GD-4534 and GD-5040 vacuum gel dryers are ideal for drying sequencing gels or multiple small format gels. A cast aluminium base, overlaid with a porous stainless steel sheet, evenly distribute the heat generated by an 800-Watt heating element, which is set in increments of +/- 2°C to a maximum temperature of 90°C. Both the heating element and vacuum pump are timer-controlled so that the drying time and vacuum pump can be set in 1-minute increments to a maximum of 5 hours, while each unit is lightweight, despite its robust construction, for easy transportation around the laboratory.

Benefits of Vacuum Gel Dryers Include:

  • 2 sizes available: -
  • GD-4534 - 45 x 34cm (W x L) format - accommodates one TVS1400 gel or up to fifteen 10 x 10cm mini-gels
  • GD-5040 - 50 x 40cm (W x L) format - accommodates two TVS1000 gels or up to twenty 10 x 10cm mini-gels
  • Drying assured within 1 hour - for sequencing gels of dimensions up to 50 x 40cm
  • Accurate temperature control - in +/- 2°C increments to a maximum of 90°C
  • Accurate timer control - of the heating element and vacuum pump - in +/-1 minute increments to a maximum of 5 hours
  • Detachable mylar sheet and porous polyethylene sheet - allow the gel dryer to be adapted for thin polyacrylamide gels and thicker agarose gels
  • Stainless steel screen - acts in conjunction with a cast aluminium base to serve as a porous gel support, uniformly distributing the heat and vacuum to prevent gel cracking during drying
  • Translucent silicone rubber overlay - allows the gels to be visualised during the drying process
  • Vacuubrand® MZ 2C + 2AK pump available

For a 110VAC electrical system use Vacuubrand® MZ 2C + 2 AK Vacuum Pump

The Vacuubrand® MZ 2C + 2 AK is a quiet, low maintenance, oil-free diaphragm pump that supplies the low vacuum necessary for fast gel drying with the GD-4534 and GD-5040 units.

Benefits include: -

  • Oil-free vacuum down to ~ 9mbar ultimate vacuum - i.e. the lowest pressure that can be produced and measured reproducibly in a vacuum system at room temperature
  • Selected chemically resistant material
  • Gas ballast valve as standard for working with condensable vapours
  • High pumping speed sustained at nearly ultimate vacuum
  • Solvent recovery close to 100%
  • Long lifetime, easy-to-change diaphragms and valves
  • Quiet, low noise
  • Compact design
  • Efficient and environmentally friendly

 

Specifications:

  • Pump Flow Rate: 35L/min
  • Unit Dimensions (W x L x H): 24.1 x 34.5 x 32.6cm
  • Number of Stages: 2
  • Pumping Speed: 50/60 Hz 1.9m3/h / 2.1 m3/h // 1.2cfm
  • Ultimate Vacuum (total): 9 mbar // 6.8 Torr
  • Ultimate Vacuum (with Gas Ballast): 15 mbar // 11 Torr
  • Inlet Connection (IN) Hose nozzle: NW 10mm
  • Outlet Connection (EX) Hose nozzle: NW 10mm
  • Weight: 11.9kg
