No, no, it's not 'even' - it should be *only* 5 months of struggling.

Yeah, once. Proteolysis was to blame.

No, it is not :)

Actually, the immuno-gel of olden times was 'native'. Pick up a really old
bacteriology or immunology textbook, you might get lucky. These gels were a
real REAL horror to decipher.

Not me :) I doubt there's a really 'foolproof' method.
