Abstract

There are several reasons for drying of polyacrylamide gels after gel electrophoresis; for example, it is necessary if autoradiography has to be performed using radioactive labeled proteins. Another reason may be to simply store the gel in the laboratory book. Aside laborious commercial solutions, the simple and cheap drying protocol presented here may be sufficient especially for storage of the dried gel in the lab book.
