I try to prepare gel by mix stocks right before need. and I didn't find the
glycerol effect anymore even with TBE. May be due to less Sequenase I used for
reaction, about 80% of recommand. I'll never used the premixed acryamide gel
buffer which gave me "glycerol effect" even with less enzyme.

Good luck to everyone!
