We have found that substitution of "Duracryl" (from Millipore) high tensile
strength 30% acryl/0.8% bis for regular acrylamide/bis results in gels
(anything from 10-20%, gradient or not linear up to 20%) that do not crack
during drying. We simply stain'em and dry'em at 60-80 oC under vac. BTW I
have no affiliation, etc with above company.
