I am looking for an alternative to PAA gels for screening microsatellites.
The reason I want to change is due to the hazards with handeling Acrylamide.
I know that some people use Hydrolink-MDE gels (AT Biochem) for analyzing SSCPs
and I wonder if someone knows if this geltype could also be used for microsatellites.
If it can be used then the next question is: How dangerous is MDE-gels compared to PAA
gels? It would be interesting to know what people working with acrylamide feels about
using it. In our lab we are using a lot of PAA gels and we start to feel pretty bad
