i agree with dima - the salt is the problem

we process the ligations thus:-

add 2 ul strataclean resin vortex, spin.

transfer the solution to a whatman microdialysis membrane floating 
on a petri dish of water. leave for an hour or so - transfer to 
fresh tube for electroporation.

this works every time - no arcing and better frequencies than with 
precipitated dna (we did a head to head experiment to test this)
