Can someone enlighten me on the pH to be expected of, say. Milli-Q
water? I'm in a new lab and I swear that RNA pellets are not dissolving
as well as they used to. The pH of the water (after autoclaving) is 6.3
on a meter and from 5 to 6 on different pH strips. Is it a really bad
idea to dissolve the RNA in TE at pH 7.5 before running it on a
formaldehyde gel? I will also refrain from drying it in a Speedvac,
something I used to do without any problem.
