perhaps it is a problem of the composition of your SDS running buffer system.
In our lab it takes one hour to run a minigel. I have tried several buffer
systems and my experience showed me that the running time depends on the
ions present in the system. Now i use the Laemmli-system that means 0.025
0.192 M glycine, 0.1 % SDS.
