I have some questions concerning the use of the automated ABI 373 stretch 

We've recently bought the upgrade version (34cm WTR). Sometimes we have 
problems with directly sequencing dsPCR products with the Taq dye terminator 
kit. It's not a problem of reactions because the sequencing with the same 
reactions have worked with the previous version of ABI 373 (24cm WTR). Is 
this a problem of the gel (other concentration) or/and of the running 
conditions. We now run the samples at 30 W. 
Is this too high for PCR products?

We tried to use the Sequenase dye terminator kit for dsPCR products but it 
didn't work? Is there somebody who has good experience with it? We perform 
the sequencing directly on double-stranded PCR products.
