RE: sequencing gels
I hope someone can help!  We silanise one plate of the sequencing apparatus 
with sigmacote and it's ben working well.  We now seem to have what appears to 
be a build-up of silane on this plate and the gel seems to be sticking to it.
We use decon as the detergent to clean the apparatus and use sigmacote 
everytime we pour a gel.  Is this problem silane or something else?  If it is 
silane, can anyone suggest a better detergent than decon? Is it possible that 
we're using the sigmacote TOO OFTEN??!!
Thanks in advance,
