	We do 2-3 day storage of gels by adding a moist paper towel under the
plastic wrap and then seal the plastic wrap with that infamous tape we're not
using to seal the plates with any more and still have several rolls of left.
We then have been storing them in the cold room or at room temp in a drawer
after covering with Al-foil to prevent light exposure, and they work fine
after 2-3 days.
Cheers again.......bruce
