I generally put Ethidium bromide directly in the agarose gel but other
people prefer to stain the gel after, saying that it is safer. It seems to
me that one uses much lower concentrations  by applying directly in the
gel, but of course some of it will elute out in to the tank buffer
What is the safest method
Thanks
