I am still trying to troubleshoot the DIG DNA detection procedure, and gosh,
what a great time I am having. :)
I have a question which hopefully others who have done troubleshooting with
Does anyone have experience with:
(1) Consequences of shaking the membrane while color pcp. develops?
(2) Consequences of using NON-FILTERED SDS and Sarcosine stock solutions?
(and of course non-autoclaved...)
(3) Consequences of using 50% Formamide prehyb/hyb solutions that are made up
of formamide that has NOT been de-ionized with resin beads?
These are all holes in my procedure that have come up; and I am somewhat
curious if they might explain my troubles, which consist of low sensitivity (
ie: no signal from all but control DNA lanes), and VERY high background
levels (ie: entire membrane a mottled deep blue colour)
If you can help, I would GREATLY appreciate it if you could mail advice to
