Posted and mailed.


We have been doing sequencing of PCR products for a number of years using
the dsDNA cycle sequencing kit from Gibco LifeSciences (no affil). Have
gotten good sequence from a 293 bp PCR fragment without the need to
pre-purify the PCR-generated DNA. Additional benefit is you only need 30
ng/kb of DNA in order to sequence (in your case, 15-20 ng of your 500bp
product should work fine).  

Sorry the suggestion had to be another kit.
