The Our Owl JGC-4 Gel Casting System offers a unique and novel way to cast polyacrylamide gels. A pouch is used to collect the excess polyacrylimide and seal the bottom of the gel. The "pouch" system eliminates the need for tape or bottom spacers. The design allows storage of gels without dehydration by adding buffer and heat sealing. The system casts from 1 to 4 gels depending on the number of gels the researcher requires. Since there are so few moving parts the system will last for years of use. It is easy, functional and designed for quick protein gel casting.
