Staining/storage containers for 24cm gels
« on: January 10, 2013, 08:20:14 AM »
What sort of containers does everyone use for staining and storage of 24cm gels?

I have some glass pyrex containers which i stain a few gels at a time in, but the gels often gel damaged during destaining when pouring off destain. Ideally I would have one gel per container but glass seems quite expensive. The official staining trays are also quite expensive and I'm sure there must be cheaper alternatives.

Anyone have any suggestions for cheap storage/staining trays?

I had thought of buying the trays provided by GE, but then I tried plastic ones from ordinary shops here- but of course, silver staining is not recommended in plastic, so I now do it in stainless steel trays from a shop here in Delhi, India, that sells household utensils. I had inquired about custom made glass trays as well (didn't get ready made trays of that size anywhere here), but they were expensive and also pretty heavy/ cumbersome to handle.

this was discussed a while ago, and yes, finding suitable staining and storage containers can be a real headache.
Some people like to use three- or four-drawer units from office supply stores, so you can conveniently stack them on the shaker. The "letter size" paper is about the same as the size of the gels, so they are readily available (at least here in North America).
I wanted something with a lid, and I ended up purchasing boxes from Ikea, because they were the only ones with a perfectly smooth bottom, so they don't tear the gel or waste solutions.
For pouring off the solutions, and general handling, I've found "Flow-Mesh" sheets really useful. They are available from Sigma (Z377619) *no commercial interest*
For storage, I tend to keep them in the big Ikea boxes, but I have a big cold room... I know some people keep them in plastic bags, either zip-lock, or the ones you heat-seal.
