Dear Netters,

does anyone have the appropriate photographic settings/conditions to get
good quality black&white 35mm shots of Coomassie Blue-stained PAGE gels?

	- filters for contrast?
	- regular B&W film (100/125 ASA) vs. high contrast?
	- backlighting (lightbox) preferred?
	- instructions for photoprocessing prints (in regard to bracketed 
		exposure settings to see effect of lighter/darker exposure 
		since autoexposure print processing would make all of your 
		bracketed shots look the same)			


we are familiar with the Kodak self-processing system but want negatives of 
the gel as well.

Thanks in advance.   -Peter
