The Gel-Cutter's edge allows for easy cutting and removal of gel material. Gel-Scooper, made of strong acrylic with a beveled edge, is designed for easy transfer of gels from electrophoresis equipment to viewing equipment. Gel-Trays (in two sizes), made of UV transmitting plexiglas, can be used for moving gels to the transilluminator. The tray protects the transilluminator's filter surface from scratches. Side panels on the Gel-Tray are angled at a 45 degree bend and extend upward from the tray surface for easy handling.

These fixing trays allow the user to drain the fixing solution and then place filter paper on top of the gel while it rests in the tray. In addition, the solution is recoverable for subsequent reuse. The trays are also useful in electrophoresis gel de-staining. These virtually unbreakable, heavy polyethylene trays are 6.4mm (¼") thick with a top stiffening flange and 5 ribs in the bottom to raise the gel and plates. Extraction of the plates is aided by 9.5mm (⅜") square ridges that run lengthwise holding the plate off the tray.
