You might consider Pellet Paint (Novagen) also.
It is a synhetic fluorescent dye, works very well for RNA precipitations (we
use it for RPAs, RTs etc.)
As Pellet Paint is a synthetic reagent you are less likely to run into
Fluorescent Sequencing (ABI) does not work with the (fluorescent) Pellet
There is no way to get rid of it !
The only way to get rid of glycogen might be to digest it, but who would
risk this (enzymes tend to be contaminated with Nucleases).
