Function and Description
The Immobiline DryStrip Reswelling Tray is an accessory to the
Multiphor II and the Immobiline DryStrip system for 2-D electrophoresis. The tray has twelve independent reservoir slots that can each hold
one Immobiline DryStrip gel up to 18 cm long.
Separate slots allow the rehydration of individual Immobiline DryStrip
gels in a minimal volume of solution (see Sanchez, J.C., et al.,
Electrophoresis, 18, 1997). By including the sample to be separated in
the rehydration solution, the sample does not need to be loaded subsequently through the conventional sample cup. Loading the sample by
rehydration eliminates precipitation at the application site and increases
the amount of sample that can be loaded to 5 mg or more.
The tray includes a lid to protect the strips from dust and contamination
during the rehydration period, which may range from 6 hours to
overnight. Leveling feet and an attached spirit level aid in the even application of solution.
Important notes
☛ Always wear gloves when handling Immobiline DryStrip gels.
☛ Do not overfill the slots; the proper rehydration volume is tabulated
in the following section.
☛ Clean the reswelling tray thoroughly after each use (see the Care and
Maintenance section).
☛ Refer to the Immobiline DryStrip Kit instructions for a complete
guide to handling Immobiline DryStrip gels.

Immobiline DryStrip Gel Rehydration
Rehydration solution volume
Ideally, the rehydration solution volume for an Immobiline DryStrip gel
should equal the amount of fluid removed during the drying process.
This ensures that the entire sample, if included in the solution, enters the
gel. It also minimizes electroendosmotic flow and water exudation during the focusing step.

Rehydration solution
The final concentration of IPG-Buffer used for rehydration of IPG strips
depends on the type of second dimension gel electrophoresis used:
To run a horizontal second dimension, use the information listed in
Table 1, and to run a vertical second dimension, use the information listed in Table 2.
Note: The rehydration solution can be stored in aliquots at -20 °C.

Sample capacity
The protein capacity of Immobiline DryStrip gels ranges from several µg
to mg. Factors that determine the maximum amount of sample for a
strip include protein solubility and the combination of pH gradient
width and strip length. In general, the longer the strip and the narrower
the pH gradient, the higher the protein capacity will be.

Rehydration protocol
Day 1
The rehydration protocol applies to both simple reswelling, with later
application of the sample by the cup method, and reswelling with sample. To proceed, the appropriate rehydration solution should already be
prepared (with or without sample).
1. Slide the protective lid completely off of the reswelling tray.
2. Level the reswelling tray by turning the levelling feet until the bubble
in the spirit level is centered.
3. Pipette the appropriate volume of rehydration solution into each
slot. Note: Deliver the solution slowly, carefully, and at one point to
minimize the introduction of air bubbles. Remove any larger bubbles
that may be trapped in the solution.
4. Gently lay one Immobiline DryStrip gel (gel facing down) on the
solution in each prepared slot. Note: For ease of removal after rehydration, place the strip so that the pointed end abuts the sloped end
of the slot. To remove a strip, slide the forceps tip along the slope
and into the slight depression under the strip.
5. Overlay each Immobiline DryStrip gel with 2-3 ml of DryStrip Cover
Fluid to prevent evaporation and urea crystallization.
6. Slide the lid onto the reswelling tray and allow the gels to hydrate
overnight at room temperature.

Day 2
1. Lift each strip and gently blot the plastic backing of each strip with
filter paper to remove excess moisture and oil.
2. If the rehydration solution included the sample, place each strip into
the Multiphor II and proceed, skipping any instructions pertaining to
sample cups in the Immobiline DryStrip Kit instructions. To apply a
sample using sample cups, refer to the appropriate section in the
Immobiline DryStrip Kit instructions.

Electrophoresis
Follow your selected protocol, or, follow the guidelines for first dimension focusing and second dimension gel electrophoresis that can be
found in the Immobiline DryStrip Kit Instructions and in 2-D
Electrophoresis Application Notes available from Pharmacia Biotech.
Note: Complex protein samples containing 200–500 µg protein or more
generally require a longer focusing period (60–100 kVh). A slow voltage
ramp for the first 3 to 6 hours may improve focusing and decrease sample aggregation.
Care and Maintenance
Never autoclave or heat any part above 45 °C.
After each use, rinse the reswelling tray thoroughly and treat with a
detergent solution to remove residual protein. Rinse thoroughly with
water and then double distilled water and allow to dry.
Never clean the reswelling tray with alcohols, organic solvents, abrasives, strong cleaning solutions, or strong acids or bases.
