Slab Gel Dryer 

  • Available in  35 x 45cm and  21 x 31cm sizes
  • Even heat distribution via an 800 Watt heating membrane
  • Accurate temperature control up to 90oC
  • Five hour timer for heating element and vacuum pump
  • These vacuum heated slab gel dryers are very versatile and are able to dry single gels up to 40 x 50cm in size or multiple small format gels.

With a drying area of 21 x 31 cm, the Midi gel dryer can dry six 10 x 10cm gels or a single larger gel. The Maxi Gel Dryer with a 35 x 45cm drying area can dry twelve 10 x 10cm mini gels simultaneously. The unit’s microprocessor controls temperature and time, each parameter being displayed on its own LED display. The gels are heated from the base plate while the vacuum removes the moisture from below to dry the gel homogeneously. These dryers feature optimal sealing using a silicone rubber cover and supporting mask. When applying the vacuum, a groove that frames the drying surface provides an optimal tight seal during the drying.

The units have two timers, one for the temperature and one for the vacuum pump. The drying temperature can be set between ambient and 90C and regulated to 2C, and the drying time set up to 5 hours in 1 minute steps. The vacuum pump can also be timed to automatically switch off, any time up to 5 hours in 1 minute steps.

The units are extremely robust in their construction. The base is of cast aluminium for even distribution of heat. The user friendly control panel is constructed from stainless steel for strength. Although solidly built, the units are extremely light for easy transportation.




  • Two pumps in one – vapour trap and high efficiency diaphragm pump
  • Environmentally friendly - traps and contains vapours

The GelMaster™ Vacuum System features two pumps in one package, a room temperature vapour trap acts as a pump by condensing the hot vapours from gel drying and trapping them from the rest of the systems. This is followed by a high efficiency diaphragm pump delivering a powerful vacuum for fast smooth drying. The pump is so efficient that the GelMaster™ can be connected to 3 three gel dryers simultaneously.

To operate, simply connect the vacuum line to the gel unit. As the gel is drying, the vapour trap condenses the vapour and removes liquid from the system. The 1.5l capacity allows between 10-15 gels to be dried before the trap needs to be emptied. The GelMaster trapping medium can be used repeatedly as it does not mix with the condensate.
