While ago, I could get down to 3 bases from the primer.
All I did was that using Mn terminator and the reaction was stopped as soon as 
sequenase added. That alone probably would take quite a while internally. The 
bands were pretty faint but I could manage to read it by exposing the X-ray 
film for a weekend.
