The solution to obtain good chromatogram is to 
increase dilution with formamide in order to 
decrease viscosity of sample.

Hi Phillip,

Sometimes, presence of genomic DNA in the prep 
may give some viscosity to it and cause trailing 
of peaks. Effect is more important as molecular 
weight of fragments increase.
