another possibility to minimize EtBr usage is to stain the gels 
after having them run. dilute 10 to 20 ul of the 10mg/ml EtBr 
stock  into 250 ml water or TAE and put your gels for 10 to 15 
min into this solution. then wash 2 times 10 to 15 min with 
I use this method if I need better staining of low MW bands that 
will be covered by the relatively high background bacuse I 
include the EtBr into the agarose normally. 
The staining solution may be reused many times (some people 
do it several 10 to several hundred times.) When your bands 
get too faint, add a little EtBr.
