Dear Netters,

	We are now working on nonradioactive, silver DNA sequencing
system. Our gel must be firmly stick to the short plate and not peel off
during silver staining process. Our problem is the adhering of
polyacrulamide gel oftenly occur to both plates.  Perhaps our long glass
plate might be contaminated with Bind-silane from the short plate.  We do
wipe excessive binding solution (Bind-silane) from the short plate, we do
apply Sigmacote solution on the long plate, we also clean our plates with
Windex cleaner. However, this problem still repeatedly strike us. Is 
there anyone out there could help me to solve this problem? 

	Any suggestion would be deeply appreciated.
Thank you,
