I've just started using big dye terminator V3.0 with our new ABI automated
sequencer and I'm on the prowl for tricks.  Basicaly, I get varried signal
strength and I'm wondering if someone can share conditions that they get
good results with.

I'm also interested in recipes on how to dillute BDT mix (buffer
composition).  I know people dillute it and I hear stories of 1:8 but I can
never get any reasonable resuslts with less than a 1:2 dillution.  So if
anyone can share I would appreicate it.
