The BioRad apparatus has the membrane sandwiches inside a plastic thingy where
the electrode wires are, and the ice compartment outside of that. But since
the sandwiches are clamped inside a plastic grid with holes in it, apparently
there is also somehing "in the way" of the current (bad physics here, I know)
so it shouldn't matter. How about putting in some glass marbles?
