There is a more simple method. Just soak the gel in 1M Na Salicylate
(Na salt of Salicylic acid) and then dry it down. If the gel is
higher than 9-10% acrylamide, soak it in some 5% glycerol to prevent
shattering. after drying it will be ready for autoradiography.
This technique is called fluorography, btw...
