I haven't tried this but have seen an interesting reference about
dilution. I think they made up their own dilution buffer:
Human Mutation, Volume 15, Issue 2, 2000. Pages: 201-203
"Big DyeTM terminator cycle sequencing chemistry: Accuracy of the
dilution process and application for
screening mutations in the TCF1 and GCK genes"
P. Boutin 1 *, C. Wahl 1, C. Samson 1, F. Vasseur 1, F. Laget 2, P.
or maybe you already read this!
