I have a sneaking suspicion that leaving these plates under UV (in the hood) 
for a few days can ruin the coating and stop adherent cells adhering.  I've no 
hard data, just that we used to gelatinize plates and sometimes left the ones 
we didnt use in the hood for several days, and every now and then we'd get a 
plate to which nothing would stick.  Maybe it's worth trying?
