I am in the process of preparing a lab manual for a course on biotechniques.
As part of two of the planned exercises, I will have the students use paper and
disc gel electrophoresis to isolate specific biochemical compounds. I would
like to expand the nature of the lab exercise by having the students con-
struct simple electrophoresis apparatuses as groups.
A few years back, I came across a reference which outlined plans for a simple
disc gel apparatus built around empty Cool Whip containers and glass tubing.
I've been unable to relocate the original reference. I'd also be interested in
a similar "homebrew" paper electrophoresis device. Does anyone out there
have any simple plans, or published references on the construction of such
