Failed Gel on Scun22

  • power supply started smoking ...
  • found different power supply, but no bubbles
  • borrowed a rig from Bohonak's lab, but not very many bubbles
  • made new TAE buffer (had been re-using the buffer, this was approx the 5th gel), but no dye migration
  • made new agarose gel from new TAE buffer with ladder and dye, ran on borrowed rig with our power supply, nada
  • brought rig with gel and buffer to Bohonak's power supply - dye migration within 5 minutes.

Conclusion: find a new power supply that works.
