PROBLEM RESOLVING H & L chain intermediates on gel

We have been trying for several months to resolve antibody
intermediates harvested from hybridoma cell extracts to measure their
quantities under different conditions. However, when we run the
non-denaturing gel, we have problems getting good separation between the
H2-L2, H2-L and H2 molecules. They are all crammed up near the top of the
gel occupying a space less than 1cm.....like so:-
Bands Molecules M.W.
_____ H2-L2 150
----- H2-L 125
----- H2 100
QUESTION: Does anyone know of a good method to get better separation, say
over a 2-3 cm distance between all these intermediates?
OUR CONDITIONS: 4% acrylamide stacking gel,
8% resolving gel,
Running buffer has 0.25M Tris and 1.92M Glycine with 10%SDS.
If anyone out there think they can help but need more information please
respond directly to engohkw at leonis.nus.sg. Thanks a lot.
P.S. Not only are we trying to resolve these bands but we hope to
quantitate the amounts too between samples (a high and a low
antibody producer)!!! The scientists that we have talked to
here says that this is almost impossible. (Hope someone out there knows
different) THANKS AGAIN!!!
..................AND A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!
