That's realy good idea and works perfectly. Use green centricone tubes
(Amicon) and centrifuge your sample with shared new buffer, at 500-100
rpm (Sorval, HB-4). It takes time, but you can get your sample not only
washed from Guan..  but also concentrated.  I use this way to
concentrate protein(s) el.eluted from SDS-PAGE. Sometimes I even use
those tubes for el.elution, set directly into rod PAGE equipment.
