- We describe some simple changes to the geometry of the IPG strips that make them suitable to the loading of very large sample volumes and of high-salt solutions. Of special relevance is the possibility of using strips with immobilized plateau(s) to either side of the gradient, or to both, also in connection with in-gel rehydration protocols and focusing in stock trays. The only requirement to achieve this is to leave the all-ready-made attitude and go back to custom polymerization of the IPGs in one's laboratory.
