we experienced the same problem. Most of it was due to a imperfect lot of
POP-6 (The fluid gel for the ABI 310) Seems there was not enough edta. We
also found that this effect disappears at a higher concentration ready
reaction mix (big dye terminator chemistry) and/or lower  [template] if the
template is longer than about 1kb . See DNAclub at
freeware for primer design. Also searches for the best pair.
