You need to get rid of unincorporated counts in order to accurately 
quantitate your RNAs.  In my hands, gel purification is the best method and 
the only one I trust.  I use tritium labelled RNA as "unlabelled" and run it 
next hot stuff so that I can cut it out of a gel.

I will be happy to share with you my entire protocol if you will send me 
your e-mail address.
