Stacking gel problems can usually be avoided by warming the plates with
a hairdrier or standing the assembly next to a hot water bath, then get
the stacking mix in whilst the sandwich is still warm. This increases
the rate of polymerisation. The gel can be heated gently during
the polymerisation step. I ALWAYS do mine this way and only very rarely
get 'sloppy' wells. I DO NOT degass the buffers either!
