LiCors and PAGE PLUS Acrylamide?

The LiCor researchers use Long Ranger or another product (Sequagel?).  They
said they tried Page Plus a long time ago and it wasn't as good as Long
Ranger.  Maybe the product has changed.  Also it may be that the benefits of
Page Plus only kick in at concentrations of  5% or higher.  When I tried to
drop below 5% my reads got worse.  Another possiblility is that there is some
specific synergy going on between the Page Plus and the Alfx software that
doesn't happen on other machines.  But I saw an obvious increase in resolution
with Page Plus -- long runs of bases in the 200's were somewhat resolved (you
could see the tips of the peaks) where this never happened with Long Ranger.
