Dear All,
        is there anyone out there who has made alginate beads?  The kind
of beads people immobilize cells with?  My plan is to make an alginate
column, but I am a bit lost trying to get this stuff to make beads which
are free flowing.  I can make an inconvenient lump by adding
calcium chloride, but no nice small beads!  Regards, Mike.
