Default Loading MeOH containing samples



Hi, I have samples dissolved in MeOh, but I cannot load that in the gel, since it floats. How can I eliminate the MeOh? Thanks

Can you heat the samples up, so the MeOH vaporizes and leaves your samples alone. Then again, why don't you precipitate your nucleic acid (I'm assuming your have nucleic acid samples, either DNA or RNA) and let it dry out of MeOH.

I don't know if I was helpful, but I hope I was. The best of luck.
