  I just throw the gel in the -80 oC for the exposure.  Frozen, the gel 
does not stick to the film.  But I also fix (60 min.) and dry my wedge 
gels much longer than most (several hours).  So this method may not cut 
it for some of you.  
  Actually, I've quit doing wedge gels since I started using HydroLink's 
Long Ranger acrylamide.  Seems to do the same thing the Na Acetate in the 
bottom buffer would do.  (But I've not tried Na Acetate so I can't say from 
personal experience.)
