: We've recently bought the upgrade version (34cm WTR). Sometimes we have 
: problems with directly sequencing dsPCR products with the Taq dye terminator

: 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.
