i used to do the sdame thing in a lab i worked in about 3 months ago.  we
slapped (more like clamping; slapping glass plates bad...:), 2 peices of
glass together, "combed" them, microwaved some agar
for about 30 sec, ran the heated agar down the sides of the plates to
create a seal and then poured the acrylamide...of course, this was b4 the
biorad stuff...then came the mini gel apparatus and things were much
faster from then on....cheers...
