Dear Shaun,

We may be onto something here.  2 people have come to my core lab with
Amersham's ET primers and I've had the same problem...blue overlay on the
gel image where those samples were loaded.  I mean, it even looks as 
the signal strength is weak underneath the blue, but when you print out 
electropherograms, everything looks in order, even great.  My worry is
this: It's impossible to track these blue lanes.  If any tracking issue
arose, I'd be in trouble.  Has anyone else used these products? The matrix
files looked fine and the samples were user-prepared.  Most importantly, 
I doing something WRONG?!!
