AcrylaGel is a ready-to-use, 30% acrylamide solution in distilled/deionized water. AcrylaGel contains 300 grams of acrylamide per liter of solution. Acrylamide in its crystalline form is subject to self-polymerization, and as a result the purity and consistency of polymerized AcrylaGel is superior to that obtainable with powdered acrylamide.

AcrylaGel can be crosslinked with Bis-AcrylaGel, a ready-to-use, 2% solution of methylene bisacrylamide with the same advantages as the AcrylaGel acrylamide solution. However, any powdered crosslinking reagent can be used with AcrylaGel.

AcrylaGel is stable for 24 months when stored tightly capped in a dark area at room temperature (20ºC).

## Protocol

### Procedure

#### Mix Gel Solution

Calculate how much AcrylaGel and Bis-AcrylaGel you need to make your gels by using the formulas below. Bring up to the desired final volume with your usual buffers and distilled water.

Va = (A)(Vt)/30
Vb = (A)(C)(Vt)/200

where,

Va = Volume of AcrylaGel to be used (ml),
Vb = Volume of Bis-AcrylaGel to be used (ml),
Vt = Total volume of gel casting solution desired (ml),
A = % acrylamide desired in gel,

EXAMPLE: To make 100ml of a 10% acrylamide gel 2.7% crosslinked with bis, calculate the volume to be added as follows:
Va = (10) (100)/30 = 33.3ml AcrylaGel
Vb = (10) (2.7) (100)/200 = 13.5ml Bis-AcrylaGel

#### Add APS and Cast Gel

Add 1.0ml of 10% (w/v) FRESHLY PREPARED ammonium persulfate for every 100ml of gel casting solution. Swirl gently to mix. Add 0.1ml of TEMED for every 100ml of gel casting solution. Swirl gently to mix. Pour the solution into the gel casting cassette.

The gel should begin to set in 10-20 minutes.
