I am sure this has been covered before....
I am having trouble getting TIGHT bands with Northern blots from 
formaldehyde RNA gels...  When I cut off the ladder from the gel and look 
at it sideways the bands are "tilted" i.e. ( / )  and I am sure this is a 
problem when I transfer the RNA to a membrane causing the wide bands I am 
seeing.  I put 2.2M formaldehyde in the gel and use a standards MOPS 
Might anybody suggest a better way?
