storage of membranes - (Nov/17/2006 )

I use the lid of the tips boxes to store my membranes. I also incubate them in this lid, and is quite useful for me, but I don´t know if there is some kind of box of whatever to store them safety because I pile them up and specially in the fridge sometimes the all the pile falls.. .
So, what do you use?

You can always dry your membranes and save them in your notebook.

If you need to reprobe the membranes, you can rehydrate them.


oh, really?
I heard that even freezing them you can reprobe succesfully. But do proteins work in spite of being in the notebook? I know they are strongly attached to the membrane, but don´t they get lost?
How do you dry? Just leaving them dry or in a heater?
