Steve, several simple points-

1. Are you removing your gel from the gel-plates.

2. Are you using the TLC plate and not the spacers in the box between
gel-plates ( I have seen someone make this mistake!)

3. Why not try a film cassette screen: they fluoresece really nicely and
more evenly than our TLC plates.

4. Are you using the correct wavelength UV?

Hope this helps,
