Tricks to eliminate non-specific binding of proteins to amylose resin, any ?

You do not specify what protein(s) you work with. There is a multitude of
reasons as to why the protein fusions may 'stick' - you'd be well advised to
provide more details before we could propose anythig but pure speculation :)

Normally, MBP fusions are run in 25 mM phosphate pH 8.0, 300 mM NaCl which
is the recommended buffer as far as manufacturer is concerned. Adding
ethylene glycol or glycerol often helps and so does the addition of nonionic
