I am lately having problem drying my sequencing gels following fixing
(5% MeOH/5
% AcOOH) to remove urea. The problem is that the Sarab Wrap is
sticking badly to
 the gel therefore either it does not come off easily or my gel
remains stick.I
am using 35S-dATP therefore I need to remove the wrap before
exposing. Any sugge
stions will be appreciated.  Ashu

I have heard of people dusting the gel with talcum or baby powder
before wraping the gel in saran wrap.  You could also check the FAQ
for other ideas.  Rick
