In response to an article in Biotechniques (FEB '94, Yang & Waldman), that
suggested it wasn't necessary to fix 35S seq gels but that the Saran Wrap
should be left on - I persuaded a grad student next door to try this :-)
He found it worked fine!! (to think of all the time I spent fixing gels!!)
BUT, he also took off the Saran Wrap!! & there was _NO_ problem with the
gel sticking to the film!!
This may be because he dried the gels very well or low local humidity.
I guess it's something to test yourself.
All in all he was pretty happy with it.
