We have been using Sequagel 4 and 6 (for 4% and 6% gels) for about 6 
now and have found them very good. They are available from National
Diagnostics. Sequagel only requires the addition of  10% APS, does not 
de-gassing and sets in about 10 minutes after pouring.

Although red rain does not seem to be a problem, PCR products over about
250 bp so seem to get a bit smeary for genotyping if the gel has been left
to set overnight.

Hope this helps.
