How to count labeled protein in SDS-PAGE gel

In the past , I separated labelled proteins in SDS-roundgels. similar the
capillargels for IEF but much thicker. Pressed the gels out from the
support and cutted them with a gelcutter (BioRad and Hoefer-Pharmacia sell
them) in 1 mm slides. gel slides were digested with approx 300ul H2O2, and
overnigth at 60 C in the scintilation counter vials. 
Hope that helps
